Fashion Scout is internationally recognized as the leading platform for discovering new design talent, and with 18 consecutive years under their belt, the Ones to Watch show is the show to be at to get the very best in up and coming talent. It’s one of the most anticipated shows of the season and we can say this season was no different.

Creating experimental garments with a surprising juxtaposition of texture, colour and shape J Moon has a playful signature aesthetic and her AW15 collection has been no different. Playing with blues, reds, greys, greens and yellows as well as a play on materials and shapes J Moon’s collection makes for a stunning infusion. Casual and entirely wearable the collection is a complete range made up of stunning jackets, dresses and tops.

The fairytale-esque narrative plays on bright vibrant colours a playfulness continued throughout the collection, with accessories such as the bright crowns worn by some of the models continuing the Disney inspiration. True to the narrative the collection showcases the hero/heroin rocking capes and gorgeous pastel coloured dresses to the villain who strutted down the runway in a balaclava and a risque bralet to match – keeping the story true to any Disney tale.
Angel Chen is all about bringing romance with a rebellious spirit to her collections, having already garnered a lot of press attention for her graduate collection “Les Noces” which had a similar aesthetic. Angel’s collection today proved to be no different; the AW15 collection was beautiful and had captivating story behind it, bringing forest creatures to life on the runway. From the models rocking branches as fingers to the forest greens and bright yellows as well as the Red Riding Hood to Peter Pan/Robin Hood references, the collection proved to be both imaginitive and other worldly.
