Fashion goes bizarre: Gold-plated mouthpieces and spikey headpieces steal the show on Royal College of Art catwalk

A trip to the dentist is something most of us dread, so we wouldn't be surprised to hear winces coming from the FROW crowd at the Royal College of Art Graduate fashion show.

Models hit the catwalk for menswear designer Lucie Vincini yesterday wearing menacing gold-plated mouth guards which bared their teeth, with a huge gold ring hanging over their chins.

In scenes that would make anyone fearful of the dentist quiver in their seats, the mouthpiece caused a stir among the audience - as the models showcased a series of weird and wonderful outfits.

From diamante-studded skull caps, to label-baring baggy shirts and tartan suits, the fledging designer's final collection made for eye-catching viewing as it was shown on the catwalk in Kensington, west London.

Key trends were clearly designed to shock, with the young designer showcasing a triple denim look and a huge white duvet coat, complete with tiered silk panelling down the sides.

Naturally, Vincini's collection wasn't the only one to turn heads during the show though - as Batman-style beanie hats, patchwork-fur jodhpurs and duvet-like jackets also hit the runway.

Fashion designer Maiko Takeda was another young graduate whose collection went down a storm with the audience, with her creature-like designs playing with geometric shapes and structures.

One model appeared to be wearing a furry caterpillar across her eyes, as she hit the runway with a spiky, perspex creation across her eyes.

With just enough clear plastic over her eyes allowing her to see, the model's eyewear graduated in colour that created a thickening effect.

Another model sheer's dress was teamed with one arm made entirely of spikes, which wrapped around the entire top half of the dress.

But it was the headpieces at Takeda's show that really caused gasps from the audience, as models managed to avoid tripping down the catwalk in their huge face-covering creations.

Despite the spiky colourful pieces covering models' eyes, there wasn't a mishap in sight as they hit the runway in the looks.

Instead, the FROW crowd were wowed by the spiked headpieces, which flaunted the designer's love of geometric shapes, which are said to be inspired by environmental influences.
