Dmonic Intent’s collection was full of sharp edges, daringly structured clothes, geometric shapes and bold colours.

Pointy shoulders really stood out in a red cropped jacket, a coal-navy leather coat, and a bright orange and black wool coat - all pieces which Lady Gaga might be seen wearing.
Fluorescent yellow and black geometry featured in a structured mini dress with a leather panel and a shrug with matching mini skirt, both worn with matching yellow and black platform ankle boots and shiny black plastic leggings.
A more muted form of the geometric pattern in dark blue and black was used for a kimono style mini dress with red edging, full length culottes, a long shirt buttoned only at the top, and an open top with a built in cape.
More bold colour came out in an orange and black uniquely structured jacket with criss-crossing panels on the sleeves and back.
The most daring piece was a bandage-style dress which looked like a strip of thick black elastic had been sparsely wrapped around the model, with large gaps revealing lots of skin.
The Silence Was collection was accentuated by over-size clothes, full-brim visor hats, fur and a mix of dull and bright colours.
Grey tartan was a frequently used fabric seen in an oversize dress, and on sleeves of various garments.
An eye-catching design was an orange and black lattice print, featured on the front of a sweater, a long sleeved zip-up sweater dress and a dungaree-style full length dress. Models also wore full brim visor hats in the same orange lattice print.
Most of the dresses were oversized and loose. There was a gold-cream and green textured print dress with an open back which was waisted but loose, a cream A-line dress with a fur collar, and two tone dresses with tops sewn to skirts of different colours and fabrics.
A somewhat strange item in the collection was a zip-together jumpsuit with a pale blue woolen top half and beige fur trousers.
Beige fur was also used in a cute zip-up coat which had a flared skirt. Another coat was made of layered and paneled sheepskin and did not close at the front.
Daniel K’s collection was a mix of earthy colours and asymmetric lines and patterns.
There were a number of garments in olive green such as a wool dress, a silk top with black panels worn with matching olive green cropped loose pants, a shift dress worn with patterned tights and a floor length open cardigan.
The earthy tones were mixed up with artificial styles in outfits such as such as a beige mini dress accessorised with a built-in leather-look black cape with an orange asymmetric design and a beige silk dress with an uneven black wide-tasselled hemline.
A diagonal barbed-wire effect pattern featured on a blue-grey full length knit dress, a muted-orange silk top and a blue-grey silk loose button down dress.
Arielle Mermin’s collection seemed to be quite seventies inspired with oranges, emerald green, mustards, velvet and corduroy.
Suits on show all had cropped trousers and came in textured blue-grey wool and emerald green velvet. A midnight-purple velvet blazer was paired with a mustard and blue patterned skirt.
A frequent trend was to pair orangey colours with blue-mauve which looked surprisingly smart. A burnt orange roll neck wool top was worn with a textured blue-grey high-waisted buttoned skirt and an apricot-mustard patterned silk button down dress was worn with navy tights.
Dresses came in oranges and dark green and one pretty dress had a turquoise, red and white pattern in a long-sleeved A-line design.
There was also a smart dark green silk jumpsuit with cropped trouser legs.
Some outfits were accessorised with funky round gold-rimmed sunglasses.
