Top Spanish designer Jesus Peiro will add haute couture style to the line-up with his 2011 collection, drawing inspiration from the myth of Atlantis. New volumes creating free-flowing silhouettes in a combination of fabrics and irregular overlays characterise each piece. Also from Spain Pepe Botella will be making a debut in London.

Italian Domo Adami, founded in 1993 in Milan by Mauro Adami, will be presenting his latest collection. The design house has gone from strength to strength and now has ateliers in Rome, New York, Japan, Hong Kong and Moscow.
