The L'Oreal Paris Runway 2 show at the Fashion Cube didn't produce anything very radical and showed off some old trends that may heading back into vogue. New influences were evident as a stylish line-up of designers were on display.

Willow has become a big name over recent years and Kit has a distinctive style, keeping things simple and elegant. There were several pretty dresses including a white dress with silver lining, plus other more subdued tones.

Subtle colouring marked TL Wood's collection, although the omnipresent black trench and popular grey highlighted the collection. A tartan jacket also took the eye.

Pretty fabrics featured in Fleur Wood's showcase. More often the knee-length dresses were evident and black and white were the most popular colours. Simple yet refined, there was an air of creativity with interesting skirt foldings, netting over the shoulders, delicate embroidery, and a classy black dress, all adding to a very good collection.

Houndstooth and florals were presented during Martin Grant's collection. In classical style, the coats and dresses looked very stylish and comfortable. The final pieces also spotlighted a Grecian-like goddess in a floor-length gown in deep sea blue, and a classic, black gown.

A highlight from Kate Sylvester was a shapeless dress - floaty but tugged in at the waist with a belt to show off layers of fabric. Also, a strapless grey bodysuit over a modest black skivvy was eye-catching.
