Carlotta Actis Barone is an Italian born Central Saint Martin’s graduate, who already has five collections under her belt. She’s worked with the likes of Stella McCartney, Balmain and BCBG Max Azria… all very different brands with different looks and aesthetics to the Carlotta Actis Barone woman.

Patrick Li, a Chinese born London based designer completed a fashion design and business studies BA at the University of Brighton. He then did a Womenswear course at the Royal College of Art, and has worked with Hussein Chalayan and Viktor & Rolf.
His specialty is to combine organic shapes with strong structure, keeping a feminine line.
His autumn/winter 13/14 collection contained beautiful architectural lines, fabric layering, a clean colour palette of blacks and whites and a little green and maroon sneaked. Each mixed beautiful fabrics of velvet, leather and splashes of glitter.
