A woman of my heart as a true renaissance woman, Bonnie Young has worked in the fashion industry, travelled the world, written a book, amassed an important collection of tribal costumes and jewellery (hashtag-very-jealous). Then returned to Donna Karan, to leave Karan to start a children’s line to suddenly realising that women were actually buying the clothes for themselves (pausing now briefly for a cynically raised eyebrow at the momentary snapshot of society today) leading her to start her own label, BY.Bonnie Young. This was her New York Fashion Week debut.

It was inspired by nature, the South, the Victorians all wrapped up in a velvet bow with a flair for seventies ease.

It’s flounces with fierce rather than frivolity – there’s nothing over the top or distracting.

Each texture, cut, silhouette has a reason.

It’s totally wearable, totally special, grown up, no-nonsense strength.

She’s one to watch.
