Fresh from a reception at Downing Street on Friday night, Rocha said people should expect the colours associated with the season for his autumn/winter 2013 collection showcase at Somerset House.

Speaking about his afternoon show, he said: "A winter forest colour – it's all about balance and harmony and celebrating fashion."

Originally from Hong Kong, Rocha said the event appears to be a success so far. "I've just arrived here and from what I've seen so far it's a great one," he said.

His Irish base appears to have influences on the collection he was exhibiting, with "diverse notions from the Wicklow countryside", according to the London Fashion Week website.
