It was standing room only at the Bunmi Koko show, themed Kaleidoscopia, when we finally managed to squeeze our way in. The clothes more than lived up to the demand, with electric bold prints and acid bright colours.

Again, the variety of fabrics used in the pieces was wide — from suede to lambskin to leather but all vibrant and feminine without being girly though we’re not sure about the models’ crystal-encrusted plastic eye masks. There was an element of the futuristic about many of the pieces with lots of sequins and structured shoulders though we loved the pleated blouse and metallic leather skirt.

Bunmi Koko was founded in 2009 by designer Bunmi Olaye and partner Francis Udom. Originally from Nigeria, Bunmi studied at the London College of Fashion and is also involved with the United Nations World Food Programme.
