This was the first season I had ever made it to a Bernard Chandran show in London, since his timings have always clashed with something else I wanted to go to. Now I'm wishing I'd popped by his other shows, because it was really rather good. It was a very sleek, polished collection in a base colour of black, but decorated in blue, green, purple, silver and gold sequins and feathers. One of the crazier outfits included a dress with white feathers jutting out of the shoulders. My friends and I really liked the oversized handbags, covered either in feathers or gold sequins. The "beauty" look was a full-on facepainting to create crazy porcelain doll-like geishas. An excellent show, only slightly let down by the incredibly repetitive soundtrack.
