5. Ke Li, The Arts University College at Bournemouth
Hilary says... 'East meets West. Cross-culture clothes based upon the uniforms of post-Cultural Revolution in China and items from Ke's schooldays, reinvented in exaggerated proportions and mixed with elements of contemporary sportswear and street style.'
Ke recommends... Junky Styling (junkystyling.co.uk) on Brick Lane is magical — they can turn old ugly clothes into designer pieces.'
6. Deimante Meilune, Colchester School of Art and Design
Hilary says... 'Draws upon the national dress of Deimante's native country, Lithuania. Vibrant and colourful, her handcraft-based collection incorporates embroidery, tailoring and screen-printing.'
Deimante recommends... 'I adore All Saints (allsaints.com), because of the unique grunge style. Next would be American Vintage (am-vintage.com) for its natural fabrics and simplicity.'
7. Emeline Nsingi Nkosi, Ravensbourne
Hilary says... 'Striking organic and naive geometric patterns are used
in loose, mixed-proportion and drop-shouldered pieces. No side seams allow for a flowing vision of print. Inspired by the American artist/film-maker Martha Colburn.'
Emeline recommends... 'I always walk away with something from vintage store Pop Boutique (pop-boutique.com). Luna & Curious (lunaandcurious.com) is great for unique designer pieces.'
