For me, these are the true delights of London Fashion Week; alternative designers fresh graduating or simply sticking to doing what they love, away from the commercial high road. After the Jasper Garvida fashion show we had a chance to look around the On|Off exhibitions of more designers; by the time I did one round, I felt compelled to do another round, there was so much to digest. The designers were all present (more than half of them CSM graduates), perked on a stool, and when prompted sang of their inspirations and stories behind the collections.

Do check out the websites of these above that have links, some collections are simply mind-blowing. Oh what eyecandy.
