Following the Fashion Diversity Awards, Fashion Diversity proper hit Museum of London on Friday and Saturday with 5 free catwalk shows of newly established, training and emerging talent, open to all, during London Fashion Week.

15 year old Brett Martindale Durning, last year's student winner, returned with a slinkily glamorous collection and Tarell McIntosh took this year's graduate prize. Student designs were decadently styled 'pleasure garden' anticipating the reopening of the museum's galleries later this year, with a similarly themed display.

Award winners Gisella Boutique, Junky Styling and Nico Didonna lined up alongside established and emerging UK designers in a show which included Bhavna Rishi, Choolips, Molasiss, Nishanti, Sacha James, Artizina and 21 Things I Love. We love men in dresses, clunky chunky beads and shocking pink - what about you?
