Using shimmering strips of cleverly cut metal Sarah Buchanan created her dramatic Empire of the Clouds collection, which was inspired by machines of flight. She collaborated with jeweller Georgina Howling and textile designer Claire Kelly.

Sisters Nikita and Tina Sutradhar go under the moniker , and worked together to produce a stunning collection titled Mundane Things, combining striking graphic elements, 80s garment shapes and an intriguing Scandinavian colour palette. The pair already have extensive business and technical training, a basic stand alone website and received the Fashion Innovation award. Miuniku is definitely a label to watch out for in the future.

I absolutely adored a super clever collection by Yunhui An, with trompe l’oeil garments that mimicked other clothes in a Mondrian colour palette. The collection was styled with matching drawn paper bag faces.

Riyeka Silburn‘s duffel coats came with a boxy 80s touch that was heightened by the use of a jewel coloured palette. She collaborated with Jessica Hearnshaw who made boxy bags to match.
