London - one of fashion's capitals of the world. Twice a year we get to see the best of British designs, and with that we get to see what the future of fashion will look like with an abundance of emerging designers. So we have put together a little list of just some of our favourite designers that if you're not aware of, then you should be.
Launched in 2012, Abley is known for his unique take on menswear - with a nostalgic, playful take on some of our favourite Disney classics - including Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and The Jungle Book - combined with contemporary designs, his aesthetic is instantly recognisable.
Part of emerging designers scheme, Fashion East, based here in Shoreditch, Central Saint Martin's graduate was selected to showcase her debut AW16 collection back in February. Known for her prints, her 'Debutante Drunk' collection takes inspiration from Old Hollywood featuring edgy yet appropriate evening attire, from leather dresses with matching opera gloves, hand-painted with scenes from horror movie classics.
From fine tailoring foundations, Shannon's mission, since 2008, is to create modern, relevant garments that have been influenced by diverse references both in menswear and womenswear. His most recent LC:M SS17 collection took inspiration from the Sports Direct with the use of their carrier bags and a spin on the logo, opting for a more current feel within fashion - Lovers Direct and Haters Direct.
Featured within the pages of i-D, Dazed and Hunger, as well as being a favourite of blogger Susie Bubble, Clio's tongue-in-cheek sense of humour is perfectly represented within her designs as she explores the themes of modern day femininity. With a vibrant colour palette, she aims to create unique, individual clothing to make women feel happy, bold and fearless. She recently collaborated with SkinnyDip for a collection of phone accessories.
