'I'm not crazy, I just like wearing straight-jackets' MAW at Graduate Fashion Week 2009. Trend forecast: Back-to-front tops and rear buttoning
Over-length knitwear from Catherine Duncan (Manchester Metropolitan University School of Art) is a perfect example of the back-to-front knitwear trend.
Salford student Rebecca Cottrell's hooded men's coat is open back and front.
Below: Mehmet Ali's mature collection was a highlight of the Ravensbourne show. It offered a cohesive aesthetic lacking in many graduates and the cuts were interesting and fresh while having commercial appeal. Note the over-length rear buttoned cardy.
Below: Off the runway: Buenos Aires based model Naomi shows off her transformable back-to-front cardy by her co-patriot designer Jessica Trosman .
