The Ones to Watch show was another varied show that showcased a mix of graduates or designer start-ups. Eudon Choi surprised the crowd with his utilitarian/khaki collection that moved away from the pastel evening wear from his previous collection. Equestrian-inspired wader boot straps were the key accessories to the parka-based collection that played with active wear cuts in luxurious fabrics with highlights like a grey wool jacket with a saddle shaped brown leather pocket and buckle.
Next up was David Longshaw, an RCA graduate who has a whimsical take towards applying his illustrations to sweet dresses with an emphasis on the shoulders.
ASKH is made up of two Danish MA graduates Ann Sofie Madsen and Katrine Hedegaard who together made a mens and womenswear combined collection that used intricate embellishments in a muted palette creating petal or feather effects.
Florencia Kozcuch, who we featured as a RISE, literally rose to the occasion with her loopy wispy knitwear that featured in her CSM BA collection, contrasted with sleek pencil skirts, spike detailing and strong accessories like wide-brimmed hats and cinch waist belts with elephant tusks on them.
