London Fashion Week: Day Four
Day four took us on a journey through imaginary walled gardens, mirrored visions and tribal parades
Brit designer Giles Deacon looked to the Chelsea Physic Garden for divine botanical inspiration, as well as the phantasmagoria of Aurthur Rackham illustrations, taking us on an hallucinatory journey through an imaginary walled garden. Psychedelic prints hypnotised, while PVC frock coats,woollen cloaks and high ruffled necklines echoed a haunting past. To contrast with the heavy gothic make-up, hair took the form of schoolgirl French braids. It was pumped with label.m Texturising Volume Spray, with strands pulled out at the sides for a disheveld appearance. The crown was spritzed with label.m Hairspray and patted down for a flat top that framed the models' boyish brows.

Texture reigned supreme at the Lulu Liu show, with models layered-up in multi-textured ensembles. Hair mirrored with a rough/smooth dichotomous look: pared down ponytails were slicked back with label.m Hold & Gloss Spray, with lengths blow dried to a smooth finish. Meanwhile tendrils were teased at the crown and along the hairline using a rick-rack technique - weaving loose hair with pins - to create a textured veil.
Edinburgh College of Art graduate Jacob Birge Vision stunned with a strong debut collection that encorporated exotic animal prints and tribal motifs through a clever use of fabrics. The power vibe continued with hair buffed to a high-shine with label.m Hold & Gloss Spray and sectioned off into chunky plaits.
