The two queues for the hugely popular John Rocha show both snaked around the corner of the tents, the sign of his status as a hugely respected designer. It’s nice to know that some British designers choose to show in London and not abscond to New York or Paris. Of course, no matter where they show, the big names still attract big crowds and big talent. The John Rocha show started with a boom, thanks to the opening model, none other than Abbey Lee Kershaw. Inspired by mythical warriors and woodland creatures, the mainly monochrome collection showed a continuation of his exploration into beauty and form. Using traditional corsetry methods, he created a strong silhouette in his structural pieces, which seemed both fragile and strong at the same time. Black fringing, strands and feathers mixed with delicate knits, raffia and tufted lace in this majestic collection.
