Designers, including Jenny le Roux from Habits, Lara Klawikowski and Gavin Rajah from his eponymous label, showed dress after dress in luxurious velvet in bright jewel colours.
Le Roux showed figure-hugging floor-length numbers alongside head-to-toe velvet smoking suits (someone smirkingly referred to them as Willy Wonka outfits) and long velvet coats in spice tones.
Velvet suits Rajah's dramatic style. He proffered high-waisted full skirts paired with crop tops with voluminous sleeves, and featuring flaming hearts (the theme of the show was love). He also teamed rich velvet reds with edgy, studded leather.
Klawikowski's range featured unusual silhouettes in floaty fabrics like mesh that appeared hand-woven.
Her range also featured the lush, rich velvety fabric in sapphire blue, with interesting crisscross detail.
