A camping trip with her boyfriend in Co Wicklow inspired Danielle Romeril's debut show at London Fashion Week.

Her take on the much-loved khaki, camouflage and 'fisherman chic' has marked this Dubliner out as a talent to watch.

Saturday was the big Irish day of the six day fashion event in the capital and Orla Kiely, the queen of print, opened for Ireland with a collection of 'Flower Power' for the modern woman and JW Anderson closed by showcasing a very wearable collection with a strong nautical theme.

There was a palpable sense of excitement about seeing Danielle Romeril, a graduate of Limerick School of Art and Design, make her debut at LFW.

Danielle integrated black lace panels with khaki in coats and separates and designed giant, 3D pockets that do away with the need to carry a bag.

Growing up first in Tullamore and later in Dublin, Danielle was fortunate to be chosen for the British Fashion Council's NEWGEN programme and she remembered an old college pal in her show and invited milliner Laura Kinsella to make headpieces.
