Louise Gray was a riot of colour, pattern and texture, and one of the most memorable collections of London Fashion Week so far. There's always something of the tribal in her work, fused with a strong air of urbanity too, and the headdresses added something almost ceremonial to the proceedings. Geometric print, sequins, graffit and sequins whirled together, but rather than looking a mishmash, it was a feast for the eyes. Despite all the hustle and bustle, this was a grown-up collection, proving that maturation doesn't have to mean dilution when it comes to design.
