Always keen to sniff out new talent, as well as support our designers past and present, the Fashion Scout team hot-footed it down to Somerset House last night for the Estethica press day, where ethical fashion is the name of the game. Brimming with designers showing anything from wartime inspired, vintage-looking pieces, to handcrafted jewellery, to full on, statement shoes, we were spoilt for choice, and the comp canap├ęs went down a treat, too.

As well as catching up with the lovely Ada Zanditon and spying some very cute Lu Flux items, we also really liked Christopher Raeburn's ultra wearable, lightweight windcheaters and Henrietta Ludgate's sculptural, modern tailoring. Michelle Lowe-Holder's eye-catching cuffs and embellished bibs were another highlight, mixing tribal and Elizabethan elements to create some truly beautiful pieces, whilst over at Maxjenny, we were bowled over by an array of fresh, vibrant prints and voluminous silhouettes. Ethical fashion just got a serious dose of sophistication, and we love it!
