The show’s message was “We Are Not Sheep”, linking to the designer’s work with new wool and but also makes a political statement, urging individual thinking.
A variety of celebrities walked the runway, including Absolutely Fabulous’, Jane Horrocks, as well as Made In Chelsea star, Julius Chowdrey, rapper, Tino Kamal, and Game of Thrones actress, Laura Pradelska.
