Royal College Of Art MA Show 2013: Womenswear

This is a vintage year for talent coming out of the Royal College of Art if the school's MA fashion show is anything to go by. It was exciting, surprising and most of all brilliant. Your new favourite designer is without doubt right here.

The element uniting the womenswear collections? Substance - there was no smoke and mirrors or gimmickry, it was all skill, craft and an abundance of heavenly texture.


Yip Long Hui astutely added romance to her fine, soft, blush knits with sheer layering and drape while fellow knitwear student Xiao Li sent her insanely cool voluminous creations down the catwalk and added edge to the pale palette with neon-soled boots.

Meanwhile, Ana Del Pinal Saenz banded her to-die-for louche kimonos with latex and Joseph McGee teamed popping jackets with glittering and ruched dresses. The overall effect? Insanely sexy.

It's hard to pick a star from the show, a consequence of falling in love with every look, but Eleanor Irving and Harriet Roeper's collections were beautiful, wearable and zeitgeisty in a way that didn't feel graduate level at all.

But take a look for yourself - full screen is a must...
