Models wear asymmetrical dresses, gauzy skirts and sunhats with sturdy lampshade-like hems

Central Saint Martins: The anticipated annual outing of Central Saint Martin’s Masters graduate collections featured a wonderful array of the avant-garde, the energetic and expertly crafted. Take the collection of Edwin Mohney whose collection included an inflated paddling pool or Rebecca Jeffs whose underwater-inspired collection featured opticals crafted from shells. On sublime form too were the architectural designs of Liam Johnson (pictured), whose collection featured gauzy skirts and sunhats with sturdy lampshade-like hems. Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans

Osman: Osman Yousefzada staged a house party for his A/W 2018 presentation, complete with Turkish breakfast snacks and an interiors-inspired installation, boasting orange bamboo frame sofas, glass tables, plants, and a host of champagne bottles. Osman’s party-popping models danced the morning cobwebs away in lurex tunics, tinsel mini dresses, bright tailoring and metallic trench coats.

House of V: A newcomer this season, rising Hong-Kong based label House of V made its debut in London, as part of Fashion Hong Kong, an initiative created by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council to promote local fashion designers on a global level. With head designer Vickie Au at the helm, House of V features minimal and androgynous silhouettes with discrete details. For A/W 2018, Au took inspiration from renowned Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind. This was noted in the symmetry and textures in her long line coats, undulating cuts and intriguing patterns. Contrasting colour blocks and the clever use of gradual stripes and geometry in shirts were standout.
