This years LCF MA show had an interesting mix of flamboyant, bright collections and exquisitely structured tailoring, with a generous amount of roadkill and fur thrown in. The widely varying design styles made for a very interesting MA show and showcased an exciting array of mens and womenswear designers to keep your eye out for in the future. The Collection of the Year Award, presented by the Chairman of the British Fashion Council, Harold Tillman, went to Sven Hoppe, whose futuristic take on classic tailoring made for a memorable eye-catching menswear collection.

The metallic palette of Jin Joo Ma's designs mixed 1940's-esque tailoring with generous amounts of glitter to create an old meets new clash, cumulating in a sophisticated and striking collection:
