This was the first London Fashion Week show for London College of Fashion graduate and 'Londoner of Heart', Francesca Marotta. Her presentation at St Martin's Lane Hotel arranged groups of models in dresses and gowns in shades of blue, culminating in a dramatic centrepiece: a jet-black gown, netted in tiers and spanning over 8 feet across the floor.
Without the formality of the catwalk we were able to capture some behind the scenes moments as well as showcase shots of this emerging designer's collection.
