Heohwan Simulation is the latest recipient of the Fashion Scout Merit Award, which entitles him to £25,000 worth of support over three seasons to build his label. Previous winners include David Koma and Georgia Hardinge, so we can expect great things from this fledgling brand.

Last season Heohwan Simulation showed with Ones to Watch but this time he was able to stage his own fully fledged catwalk show. Designer Hwan Heo, an RCA graduate, continued in his exploration of hard edged womenswear inspired by his background as a menswear graduate.

This was a confident showing which built on his last collection: boxy triangular shapes were softened with the application of abstract painterly placement prints, mesh textures and checks. Slate, ivory and camel tones were worn with bright grassy green and sunshine yellow, whilst belts were wide and zips were prominent, often traversing the length of a garment. I particularly liked the coats: a crop swing jacket with a single double breasted fastening and a blouson worn with this season’s favourite wide legged trousers. It will be interesting to watch Hwan Heo’s progress over the next few seasons.
