Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Manhattan anymore. From fantastical flowered headgear to sheer-ish latex looks and peekaboo trousers, but a few hours after New York Fashion Week wrapped, the message in the land of outlandish fashion was clear: "Welcome to London Town!"

Eilish Macintosh Designer: Eilish Macintosh

  • "You can already imagine Alexa Chung in one of her elegant and quirky-without-being-silly dresses." [

    The Daily Telegraph]

  • "Eilish Macintosh took a step towards fashion greatness tonight as she was awarded the L’Oreal Bursary Award at the Central Saint Martins MA show by one of the prestigious fashion college’s most famous alumni: Christopher Kane." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "Remember her name. Even though the rope work over plain long black dresses that kick-started the evening’s proceedings, at times tangling by the models’ feet or asphyxiating one’s face like an S&M mask, probably had a point to make about female sexuality and bondage ... it was her use of rope as the stitching holding together the patent leather jackets and baggy trousers that followed that showed real talent." [SHOWstudio]
  • "Macintosh impressed with two collections this evening--first a simple selection of black dresses enlaced and encased with cords of rope around the body. It was a simple but effective idea. The rope was then replaced with frame decorations on strategically placed parts of the body--the bust and the derriere for controlled peek-a-boo moments." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "There was a macramé-meets-bondage look to these, especially with provocative portholes located over and under bosoms, and in the center of buttocks. [WWD]

Eudon Choi Designer: Eudon Choi

  • "This may be a fall collection, but it's springtime in Russia." [The Cut/

    New York Magazine]

  • "The unwieldy headpieces lent a folksy vibe to pretty, delicate dresses, wearable chunky knit jumpers and neat wide-leg slacks." [The Daily Mail]
  • "It's hard not to lose your sense of fashion humour when you're forced to wade through hoards of street style wannabes en route to a show, and I very nearly did. Fortunately, Eudon Choi swiftly sorted me out with a perky collection of folk-inspired fun." [The Daily Telegraph]
  • "Could ‘Folk’ be the first big trend of London Fashion Week? Let’s hope so if it looks as good as it did at Eudon Choi." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "Mother Russia was in the house, and in a big way. Choi is a designer who likes a theme, and this one worked for him; it introduced a richness and romanticism to his erstwhile architectural aesthetic." [Style.com]
  • "We've come to expect the more pragmatic from him and in the past outerwear has been the really strong focus --but it's the sign of a developing and growing designer who's able to change tack and still slip in those signatures." [Vogue.com UK]

Felder Felder Designers: Annette and Daniela Felder

  • "Felder Felder, the youthful label started by twin German sisters Annette and Daniela Felder, incorporated a subdued yet confident masculinity in their collection." [Artinfo]
  • "Latex and fur, for the woman who can't decide whether to be sleek or luxurious." [The Cut/

    New York Magazine]

  • "Although some of the Fashion Fringe and the off-schedule designers have produced typically outlandish garb, other new talents, Felder Felder for example, appear to have raised their game." [The Daily Mail]
  • "Oh my, what a turnaround. Leggy identical twins Dani and Annette Felder upped the ante this time. Looking to the Seventies and a fusion of skateboarder Tony Alva's attitude and the work of photographer Sarah Moon, the German duo delivered a chic, slick, well put together and--most importantly--covetable collection." [The Daily Telegraph]
  • "The woman who leaves her house wearing Felder Felder's Fall silver leather, crystal-embroidered minidress is expecting some attention. Ditto the girl whose winter coat is the British label's white wool number, with its heaps of Mongolian lamb fur. Sisters Dani and Annette Felder are expanding the borders of their line beyond the rock-chick looks they've been known for, but they're still designing for the customer for whom all the world's a stage." [Style.com]
  • "Next season, Felder Felder’s girl has plans to rule the school." [Vogue.com UK]
