With an unnaturally early Sunday morning off to a great start.
 
We ventured out of the fashion trivector of the main tents and the two off-schedule venues and made our way to The Old Sorting Office in New Oxford Street for Qasimi.

Taking inspiration from the Byzantium era, the fabric was laden with bejewelled embellishment.

Shoulders were sharp and dramatic, giving the effect of a very ancient and exotic military uniform, but sculpted shapes were offset by romantic chiffon in various shades of blush.

One asymmetric draped gown featured an armour-like bodice evoking a warrior princess.

This was a collection of eye-popping pieces, carrying on the trend that we've seen this week for opulent embellishment and architectural shapes.

Eley Kishimoto always show good prints and they certainly kept with tradition, although this season their usual pattern frenzy seemed more refined.

White flocked prints on bold primary colours and artfully clashed patterns were shown alongside gauzy chiffon rainmacs and pretty pinafores.
 
Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto are experts at sending fun, smile-inducing clothes down the catwalk and it looks like their sense of fun spills over into their goody-bags too, with an Eley Kishimoto designed Frisbee for all the front-rowers!
