MAW@ Alternative Fashion Week Day 5, Photo report

Catch my full report of the AFW action at Bitching and Junk Food soon:

Above and below: Ismail Erbil's avant-garde womenswear collection featured sinister hangman hoods and colourful chord and video tape draping over sexy toga dresses

Chelsea College of Art and Design students' clinical themed pieces. Below: Daniela Daminico shows the sculptural design she developed with Stephanie Deaves (R) and Valeria Olkhova's fungi-inspired outfit.

(Right) Model turned designer Sahhara stirred things up with her heavily accessorised lingerie line. And Gillian Ramsay's denim-heavy grandfather inspired collection offers up my favourite men's all-in-one I've seen this year.

Most interesting detail awards go to Grace Maran who used vertical drawstrings to give adaptability to a man's jacket and Louise Crockett for her use of childrens' toy images from laser-cut leather

I was down with Joanna Tulej's outfits which used clever cuts to lift architectural shapes off the body. Left: Clementine Baxter's original footwear worked well with Tulej's collection.
