The future has landed: The hottest designers to watch out for at London Fashion Week


Louise Gray & Nazir Mazhar

Gray is a maverick of print and colour, specialising in loud, proud knitwear with bolshy embellishment (showing tomorrow). Mazhar is one of Britain's most ingenious hatters, imbuing classic shapes with futuristic cool.

Richard Nicoll

'Laura Palmer blue' was coined for Nicoll's space-age and sports-couture collection, based on the heroine of Twin Peaks and rendered in a matte, modern shade of cornflower. Showing tomorrow.

Marios Schwab

Known for his ultra-feminine, cyborg, body-con silhouette, Schwab's look has elongated and matured for spring 2012. Showing tomorrow.

Mary Katrantzou

Central Saint Martins-trained Katrantzou is known for her palimpsests of prints, which feature everything from florals to goldfish. Showing Tuesday.

Maarten Van Der Horst

The Dutch designer bisects garish tropical prints with antique petticoats for a look inspired by retro drag queens. Showing as part of Fashion East on Monday.

J.W. Anderson

Touted as one of the brightest young lights on the schedule, JW Anderson's futuristically tectonic dresses mix sports references with an ultra-luxe finish. Showing today.
