Brackley designer Brad Dykes turned heads at London Fashion Week with a bespoke design for a tea company.

The striking outfit, made up of packages from tea company Drink Me, was worn by model Liz Day, also from Brackley.

Mr Dykes, 27, was a student at Magdalen College School before going on to study a Masters in fashion with business studies at Brighton University.

He says: “I have always designed around the idea of movement. Although this was a big gown it had a lot of elements that allowed a lot of movement.”

After his studies, Mr Dykes studied as an intern in Los Angeles , designing outfits for the likes of Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake. He now works out of London where his label Style Armell has become well-known in the Latin and ballroom dance scene.
