Tim Watson

Tim Watson
Tim Watson's retro-super-future menswear is brilliant, and a close call for my pick of the bunch (interestingly both the collections I really responded to were menswear). Bold silhouettes in a blocky lego-man palette of yellow, blue, grey & white, this is space utility to the extreme when all worn together but iminently doable as separates in the real world.

Samuel McCloy

Samuel McCloy
A (fairly literal) insectiod inspiration from Samuel McCloy who played with proportion successfully, LOVE those fur hemmed pants!

Seth Cray
Subtle & subversive textile design from Seth Cray.

Stephanie Fulham
Shiny, articulated plastic neckpieces (I think we can see what I like about this) and kaleidoscopic prints by Stephanie Fulham.

Cassandra Macdonald
Westwood-boudoir-wench from Cassandra Macdonald, I thought that perhaps individual pieces needed refining but the look was cohesive.

Anna Jacoba Hohnen
You know it's serious fashion when the tabi boots come out - but Anna Jacoba Hohnen did the Japanese/Scandanavian-influenced aesthetic justice with a mixture of finishes and pops of red.

Lauren Sims
Delicate embellishment from Lauren Sims.

Xi Chen
I DO enjoy a quirk - Xi Chen's collection, entitled 'The Queue', had various incarnations of this traditional Chinese hairstyle detailed on the backs of the garments.

Ariana Davis

Ariana Davis
Strong, elegant & dishevelled - Ariana Davis utilised knots and feathers that referenced her Maori heritage.

Ysabel Tang
Whimsical white & unexpected proportions by Ysabel Tang - the dress on the model in motion is beautiful, sexy without any smut.

Katherine Young

Katherine Young
Rorschach devore and perforated leather from Katherine Young - in my wardrobe please.

Emily Muco

Emily Muco

Emily Muco
Why yes that IS a blue faux-fox stole, a perspex swan hat, shiny stripe pants & lots of sequins. Emily Muco, Dame Edna would've been proud (and I mean that in the best possible way).

Stephanie Kinsman

Stephanie Kinsman
Intricate, insideout lasercut layers from Stephanie Kinsman who investigated the effects of technology on 'couture'. Her final gown (pictured, with the fully covered head) was a showstopper.

Molly Stott
Recycled tyre rubber juxtaposed with delicate pastel pink and a historical twist by Molly Stott.
