Styleless wonders get a head-start at remedying their situation this week when the Royal College of Art reveals its fashion graduates' first catwalk collections. And there are no excuses, as three of the shows are open to the general public, including Wednesday's champagne reception. So for the chance to feast your eyes on future trends - including Dagmara Childs' work (left) - at an event which has previously discovered the talent of Julien Macdonald, Philip Treacy and Deborah Milner, among others, head for the Porchester Hall, Queensway, W2 on Tuesday and Wednesday.

16 Jun, 5pm, pounds 7; 17 Jun 4pm, pounds 7 and 6.15pm (incl glass of champagne), pounds 12. For tickets, write to: Margaret Manley, School of Fashion and Textiles, Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, London SW7 2EU enclosing cheque made payable to Royal College of Art (Fashion)
