In an exclusive interview with our Editor, Ian described the collection as "very whimsicle and romantic with lots of chalky, pastel colours which the customers have really liked. We've also had stripes, spots and different textured fabrics this season!"

Talking of his fashion show, Ian said, "we worked very hard to make the show beautiful in every possible way, although I'm always nervous - every single time! It was a beautiful show and everybody loved it so I’m very, very pleased."

And what a show it was! Accompanied by operatic arias, the full and flamboyant dresses wowed the audience with their breath-taking beauty. Layers of silk, tulle and lace were embellished with overblown flowers, oversized bows, ruching and draping to create a star-studded collection of dresses that are sure to set the standard for the season to come.  Most dramatic of all was the final dress of epic proportions featuring festoons of floral print and a flower embellished parasol.

Finale: South Pacific

Our Editor's favourite: Blueberry Hill - a stunning full gown in a beautiful blue bow jacquard fabric - an absolute delight!
