WHO?: Holly Fulton

IN A NUTSHELL: Vegas-meets-Margate: Holly designed her spring/summer collection for "the lady that having blown her annual budget takes a vacation a little closer to home." So think half 'neon-lights' clashing prints and disco skirts, half 'saccharine sands' seashell-adorned shift dresses and silk wide-leg trousers. Footwear came courtesy of Christian Louboutin, in the form of black or nude sling-back sandals, or taupe and blue suede slip-on mules.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: All of it. Any of it. We're not fussy. The pastel-hued Sixties-inspired shift dresses were undeniably adorable, while we could also imagine throwing some shapes on the dance floor in one of the embellished textured mini skirts. Also, definitely wouldn't turn down the chance to step out in some blue suede shoes...

THE F-ROW: F-row regular Hilary Alexander, plus plenty of hip emerging fashion students and style bloggers (hopefully taking note!)

THE VERDICT: Another resounding success from Miss Fulton, the spring/summer collection was a true celebration of British design talent: where contemporary meets retro. On which other catwalk would you find monochrome zebra print and chessboard prints paired with pretty pastels, seashell-adorned accessories and mirror-ball tasseled skirts? Love, love, love.
