Ilaria Lepore AW18 at London Fashion Week

Titled 'Whats The Next Evil'  Ilaria Lepore's AW18 gives a visual insight into the tribal power of the roots.

By using black exclusively in her designs, this accentuates the shape and the cut of the pieces, as well as experimenting with shadows and silhouettes.

Using extra long belts and ropes as accessories, Ilaria created erotic undertones in an androgenous collection

Oversized chunky wool cardigans are paired with deconstructed trousers.

Taking the peacock as a symbol of renewal and transformation, peacock feathers adorn the side of trousers and cuffs of sleeves

Precious wools and leathers represent a myriad of changes in the human consciousness as they surge together like a peacock creature. The shearling overcoat represents the designer's non conformist attitude to move away from the mass.

Wool velvet bend the boundaries and warps Ilaria's own identity in flamboyant nature inspired shapes

Ones To Watch present: Kristel Kuslapuu AW18 at London Fashion Week

Drawing inspiration from cliches and irony, Kristel Kuslapuu describes herself as a kinky knitwear designer from Estonia and her designs as loud and trashy.

She flirts with sculptural forms, bold colours and unique patterns.

She is a self confessed maximalist sharing provocative messages and going beyond the limits of the traditional gender conformity.

Jamie Wei Huang AW18 Menswear at London Fashion Week.

Titled 'To All the Hearts That Dream' AW 18 is inspired by 1990's Hong Kong, the golden era of the entertainment industry. The legendary figures of the industry revolutionised a new peak. The time was driven by courage, deep longing, and that almost young and foolish fearlessness hearts.A time that feels like it wasn't all that long ago, but the nostalgia it brings is a reminder of what's been missing now.

 . Jamie expresses this with a bold colour palette, youthful denims and tartan prints. Abstract design on green jumper is akin to a crisp falling out of a packet.

.  Trousers are adorned with belts around the knees and ankles

The collection is a dedication to those who dreams, and are stubborn enough to still believe in it.
 AW 18 is a collection about passion and dreams.

Malan Breton AW18 menswear at London Fashion Week

Titled 'Omega', this last letter of the Greek alphabet signifies the end of a journey to one’s clarity and self.

The collection has a theatrical flair with inspiration drawn from Edwardian Tarot, the wizard Merlin,

 and  Chinese astrology

But it also shows a darker side with inspiration from the myth of the four horsemen of the apocalypse- . The four riders symbolizing Conquest, War, Famine, and Death.

 “This collection, has been a journey of self-realisation, a point of gaining ones hope back in humanity. Rebuilding one's shell, one’s armour, one’s heart. Love lost, valour, and watching gluttony, and greed change humanity for the worst....” – Malan Breton
