Want the perfect remedy to a bad day? Wear head-to-toe Louise Gray. The Scottish designer behind the self-titled line has us sold on her bright, rebellious East London quirk - and she's the perfect example of how a background in hand embroidery can come in handy. Gray's simple lines let her fabrics speak for themselves, and speak loudly they do. Or at least fashion-scouting guru Lulu Kennedy thought so, since she invited the Central St Martins grad to Fashion East for three seasons straight at the start of her career.
