From the moment Ali Stephens walked out in the first look at Danielle Scutt, you knew you were in for something playful and innovative.
Known for her use of color, this season was no grand departure for the designer. With the exception of one rather outlandish pom-pom adorned scarf, the collection was playful and fresh. There were plenty of polka dots and a ouch of metallic.
The short and sweet presentation was well-received by an audience that included big hitters from most of the major UK magazines.
While editorial stylists will probably gush over some of the pieces, the odd juxtaposition of bondage-style swimwear with clown-like ruffles will most likely be lost on the retailers.
