"Simple - or any derivative of - isn’t usually a word you would associate with the Scottish designer who, backstage, sported cerulean blue and gold glitter eye make-up and who, on the catwalk, is famed for her more-is-more and it-shouldn’t-work-on-paper-but-it-does approach. But there was a simplicity here - especially in the wispy chiffon dresses which were party-perfect. Gray had said that inspiration for the collection also came from the aftermath of a party - the moment she and her friends got in from a night out and the idea of the blur of having fun.

The dresses will work on their own and will sell well - they’re not too over the top but they are Louise Gray. On the catwalk, they really were Louise Gray - styled up over shirts and platform shoes and frilled ankle socks. We had dinky jackets of pink and mint brocade and playdoh-colour patchwork jumpers, huge sequin flowers, foil and plenty of print.

This was a wardrobe for a lot of different types of women. “It’s a mentality,” summed up Gray - whose philosophy for the collection was “everything matches if you like it”. Which is indeed true.” (vogue)
