“Great soundtrack, innovative styling, cohesive collection. Wynn Hamlyn’s first solo show stood out for all the right reasons.” — Amanda Linnell, managing editor

“Getting on the Link bus with Miss Crabb and all her models on Tuesday night. Lucky I had my Hop Card.” — Guy Coombes, photographer

“True individual style. Particularly from Katie Melody Rogers, a hair and make-up artist and model booker. Every outfit she wore during the week I found inspiring because she wasn’t trying to look like everyone else but herself.” — Dan Ahwa, fashion editor

"The different ways that designers showcased their collections: traditional shows (Harman Grubisa), brilliant gimmicks (Miss Crabb), moving performances (poetry at Jimmy D, choir at Hailwood), and exhibitions (Twenty-seven Names). The latter’s show notes asked the pertinent question of the week: “What would happen if, instead of asking, ‘how do I look?’ we asked ‘what will I do today?’" — Zoe Walker, associate editor

“Model Jordan Daniels, especially in that psychedelic yellow top and flares combo at Lucilla Gray. Plus, she always had a smile on her face backstage.” — Danielle Clausen, editorial assistant

“The flashy rhinestone leather belts at Stolen Girlfriends Club caught my eye. Originally sampled for the brand’s last collection, they’ve made a return and will be sold at the Newmarket store soon.” — Rosie Kelway, writer

“I don’t usually pay too much attention to the beauty at shows, but the look at Miss Crabb was too good to miss. The baby blue eyeshadow and bright red lips perfectly captured the spirit of the evening, which was spontaneous and rebellious at the same time.” — Jessica Beresford, digital producer
