The highlight of this year features designers experimenting with their style and expression to bring a change in one of the country's most fashion conscious city.

A number of designers are now embracing plus-size models to bring in a dialogue of body love. The most recent example is that of American model Ashley Graham who is a size 16. The model became famous when she hit the catwalk for Michael Kors in February.

Imran Amed, founder, and editor-in-chief of London-based website Business of Fashion, said, "this generation expect a different kind of relationship with the brands they engage with". (AFP)
