A Sai Ta, Matty Bovan, and Supriya Lele are the three emerging designers Lulu Kennedy selected to show as part of her prestigious London fashion incubator Fashion East this season. On the Saturday of London Fashion Week, they presented their hotly-anticipated spring/summer 18 collections at 10am, then had one night to catch up on sleep before the party thrown in their honor on Sunday night at Moth Club in Hackney, surrounded by the Fashion East team, alumni, and industry friends, sponsored by Bumble. i-D gave each designer a disposable camera to document their night, and asked them a few hungover questions for posterity.

What does Fashion East mean to you?
It means a lot, Fashion East has given me the opportunity to create and push myself to keep learning and develop as a designer. I'm learning so many new skills and it's been really challenging and exciting.
How would you describe the party in a sentence or two?
SASHAWAY IN ASAI TAKEAWAY.
What song did you dance hardest to?
"Firestarter" - Prodigy
What was the weirdest/funniest thing you saw/heard/did?
It would be really rude to spill. Losing one of my new nunchuck earrings from the show, so if anyone has found, please return!
What's your secret to feeling fresh the morning after?
Lemon, water, and a face mask.
And lasting all of fashion month?
Rice cakes.
How will you remember the spring/summer 18 season?
Tsunaina singing for the show finale brought me to tears in the fittings. She is so iconic. And showing in Chinatown! Save Chinatown!
What lessons have you learned this season?
