Chandran's Malaysian inspired collection was gorgeously structured and embellished. Use of metallic fabrics, silks and lurex added femininity to sharp pieces. This was one of my favourite collections; because of it's 'robot-esque' feel! The original collection showed that Chandran truly is an innovator of SS11's Asian trend.

I was blown away by Spijkers, as I had never heard of them before. The collection was playful and girly and very reminiscent of Miu Miu SS10. Models descended the runway with mermaid hair, looking like beautiful ethereal creatures. The collection was ultra feminine, with pleating and lace and floral being key features.
Aime's collection of lycra leggings and origami t-shirts left a lot to be desired. Asian inspired pieces, such as geisha platform shoes and mini box hats were present. But with designers such as Isham's more creative offerings also embracing the oriental trend, the collection ended up more comical than couture.
