London College of Fashion MA Womenswear Show 2016

At the decadent Royal College of Surgeons, a selection of London College of Fashion MA graduates showed their womenswear collections. Here are our favourites!

Last Thursday, a select group of London College of Fashion graduates presented their MA collections. This year's venue was the stunning (and slightly imposing) Royal College of Surgeons; specifically, the dramatic Edward Lumley Hall. Arriving early at these events offers many advantages - a well organised event meant I could choose a decent vista and survey the ethereal set, complete with broken glass and mirrors.

The show started only a few minutes late, with conscious whispers of the live stream on the LCF website. Opening the show, Zhixian Wang showed a dreamy collection of cosy duvet-like dresses with drawstring pulls that created shape. Models had helium balloons attached to their arms and bursts of orange brightened different numbers.
