Last night was the turn of fashion graduates from Kingston University, London to show off their final collections. 27 graduates showed their three years of hard work in ranges of mens and womenswear at the grand Banqueting House in Whitehall.

Sophie Hulme, who won best collection for her womenswear, presented a range of womenswear which was a feminine twist on military wear. This look is well summarised in the show guide by a floral aeroplane! Hulme created sequined parka jackets, jackets with over sized combat pockets and dresses with applique detail.

Joshua Kane (pictured is a piece from his collection) created a line of menswear inspired by the Dandy boys of the 1800's. Presenting tailored jackets and trousers with high necked shirts and cravats on well groomed models with short, neat hairstyles. A look which experienced a brief renaissance in the late 1990's, and if current trends are anything to go by will soon be repeated.

We will be continuing to bring you coverage of Graduate Fashion Week over the next ten days.
