“Tracey Dockree’s collection was eye-catching despite consisting mainly of muted greys and browns. Her most memorable look can best be described as an oversized sleeping bag with an even bigger hood attached and pulled tight around the face. It certainly got peoples’ attention, although it felt more suited to those sleeping rough, than those off for a night out!”
