DESIGNER: Aminaka Wilmont

INSPIRATION: Marcus Wilmont told us he was inspired by "tribal and preditorial themes. Through that we've created a look that is harsh but still delicate".

TOP LOOKS: T-shirts and dresses in a graphic animal print, belted knitwear with draped necklines, an oversized shearling jacket, leather hotpants teamed with knee-high socks and a beautiful fur and feather cape.

WHO WAS THERE: Brix Smith Start of Gok Wan fame and a lot of disgruntled fashion bloggers who weren't there in time to get to their front row spot.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: After the show, Wilmont revealed that he prefers to design for "older women who are happy with who they are" and his clean, contemporary collection reflected just that. It was colour free, with dark greys, black leather and neutrals taking precedent but the re-occurring pattern blurring "chamelion and hyena print with animal eyes" was strong, fierce and feminine at the same time.
