For the second year in a row Specsavers partnered with Fashion Scout for their amazing Ones To Watch catwalk. Selected by a panel of industry experts, Ones To Watch showcases four of the best emerging designers.
With such a range of styles, all equally as powerful, I think this years show might just have been the best one yet.
I was lucky enough to be invited backstage with Specsavers to witness all of the pre-show madness.
The backstage area was a whirlwind of energy. With hair and makeup artists, photographers and designers running around finalising all of the little details.
First to the catwalk was Ana Ljubinkovic, a Serbian designer. Despite my usual monochromatic attire I absolutely adored her work. Her pieces were bold and structured but not at all lacking in femininity.
The second designer, Anissa Aida, stole the show for me. The collection, centered around her Tunisian heritage, was full of white and blue and lots of stripes, something I’ve found myself favouring lately.
Third to show was Ester Kubisz. This unisex collection blew me away. Not only was every item tailored to perfection and matched with killer specs, it was all completely wearable.
The grand finale was down to Billie Jacobina, and she really didn’t disappoint. The collection was a textile lovers dream. Full of colour and texture, it was quite hard not to reach out and touch it.
And of course, I watched the show through my favourite specs, the Flexi 94‘s.
