Talented young designers Boudicca don't play by any rules except their own. Boudicca are less interested in creating clothes to wear than in ideasbut that's exactly what we come to London to see. So here are a few ideas, fresh from the Boudicca runway. A striped organza blouse that billowed out at the waist in wonderfully extravagant folds was bound in with a huge white sash. Then there was the precious cut shirt, a little puffed at the shoulder, whose sleeves split down the side of each arm and were starched to within an inch of their lives. The leather coats with weird flaps at front and neck weren't exactly deconstruction nor reconstruction. London fashion sometimes defies description, but that's the fun of it.
