'Ones to watch' delivered four womenswear designers who showed loads of fresh and innovative talent!
Hermione de Paula was first onto the catwalk and provided us with a beautiful insight into a hypnotic dream world. The chiffon was a mix between tie dye and a floral print, which was a beautiful combination. The garments were adorned with gold chains, that draped effortlessly over the shoulders and the low backs.
Ada Zanditon's collection had a strong geometric feel to it, that was reflected through her work in print, jewellery and the structure of the garments. If anyone thought patchwork was for your grandparents, then you're wrong! Zandition has created an amazing scarlet dress that has been created from two different hexagon shapes sewn together, amazingly elegant! Zanditon wowed us again by creating a dress that is produced from many 3-D hexagons all sewn together in a bold hexagonal print, this dress is enough to make you go crossed eyed, but it is so worth it!
Marko Mitanovski, well what can I say expect... WOW! I loved it! The models wore hair pieces in the shape of antlers with 3-D eyebrows to create the eerie and gothic atmosphere! The collection had a strong hint of Gareth Pugh throughout, due to gothic essence of his designs. Leather featured strongly in this collection and was used to create bodices, dresses and capes. The leather was pleated and layered up to create the most fantastic effect, it was captivating!
Dean Quinn's models walked onto the catwalk with wet look hair, that complemented the beading used in the collection. The beadwork created a 3D structured effect on the clothes. The tailored suits had coloured panels with padded embellished shoulders. Definitely the designers to watch..
