Scores of the UK's hottest new design talent showcased their work at a recent special event, to mark Profile fashion show's 10th anniversary.
A total of 20 designers from ladieswear, menswear and accessories sent their s/s 12 creations down runway, viewed by the press and other VIPs.
Collections were seen by buyers from asos, Topshop, Debenhams, House of Fraser and NottingChic, among others.
The event, which took place at glamorous London venue One Marylebone, also marked the launch of reality-TV star Lauren Goodger's debut collection; Lauren's Way.
Her all-pink couture range of red carpet dresses was inspired by Grecian attire. It featured one-shoulder designs and toga style pieces.
Profile is organised by Fashion Enter, part of a wider support and learning network aimed at nurturing and developing new talent.
This year's Profile fashion show was open not only to trade but also consumers, with a selection of designers selling their work to the public.
Creations by Magenta 8, Tobi Hannah, Bad London, Love Emile and Tina Lobindi were among the eclectic mix available to buy.
The line-up also included a Lauren's Way pop-up shop, which housed the celebrity's clothing line and beauty products.
Collections being reviewed by press, buyers and VIPs displayed similar creativity and innovation.
Kelly Love exuded old-world glamour and femininity, with luxurious fabrics and precise tailoring, while Rebecca Torres – whose label Torres is already a best-seller on asos.com - really stood out with her dynamic shapes and strong colour palette.
Jewellery designer Marina Prokopiva, meanwhile, accessorised Simon Wang's contemporary collection on the catwalk, with her colourful and decorative pieces of wearable art.
Eye-catching designs by Rachel Antonio, Vjera Vilicnik and Louloubelle Bags (created by Louise O Leary) also graced the runway.
