Birmingham City University was done proud by Daniel Mark Welsh, who exhibited a bright, bold and finely crafted collection of bold colours and 80s referential tailoring.
Granddad collars and sharp shoulders were paired with loose harem trousers and experimental fringing. A bright turquoise suit exhibited Welsh’s tailoring skills, bringing something that wouldn’t have looked out-of-place in a Cameo video straight into the 21st century and made wearable and crucially, covetable.
A PAUSE favourite was the sharply tailored neutral toned print tail coat, replete with pointed shoulders. This forray into the formal was offset with androgynous styling in the form of a fuschia clutch bag and sheer tights worn under fuschia trousers. Overall, Welsh presented a collection that has produced many instantly recognisable pieces and was a welcome update for mens tailoring, firmly taking it from fusty to fun.
