Masha Ma kicked off our Day Two this season, to a less than full house at Vauxhall Fashion Scout – not to worry though as this meant more room for Sophie on the front row. It was half past ten on the morning after the first night of Fashion Week after all so maybe all those fashion heads were feeling too sore to make an appearance so early.

Standout looks included sleeveless jackets, a bib made from hand-sewn gold beads and prints of buildings, doors, frames and handles. White straps bound the models’ heads and ponytails were long, straight and slick.

Ma made a feature of the open back, a quick-fire way for sophisticated sex appeal if ever we saw one and zips also featured heavily in adorning the pieces, helping to toughen up the look together with stilettos wrapped in white plastic. So how does the collection compare to the palace? Let us know below.

    Is it just me or are those room interior prints a little bit of a Mary Katrantzou rip off? I still like them though.
