From a jacket embellished with hair extension fringing to sunset inspired fabrics, there was an eclectic mix of designs to excite the senses at the Northumbria show. Highlights included Hannah Casen Seawright's collection of delicate formal wear described by her as 'treasured and timeless'. This French sailor T-shirt design was a personal favourite.

Ludmilla Maida's unique designs embrace the multicultural world and are made from a collection of eye-catching clashing fabrics. My favourite element of the collection was definitely the platform heels embellished with bells around the ankles - wear these and you will definitely make an entrance.
