Bip Ling hits the front row and the decks in a Nay Young Shim jacket and Hayley McBride skirt (both students at Nottingham Trent University)
This week the fashion world is looking towards bright young things with graduate fashion week, as we've been spotting new things at the St Martins graduate show, the Royal College of Art show. Yesterday we caught up with fashion blogger Bip Ling at the Nottingham Trent fashion show, as she is a Nottingham Trent University Ambassador. Bip is a pro at uncovering hot new talent and so we chatted with her backstage to find out what caught her eye at the graduate show...
Grazia Daily: What are your favourite pieces and why?
Bip Ling: The green leather trousers - I've never seen leather pants like these! I also love the white blouse and skirt, they are made out of a white plastic material, super soft and fresh!
What do you think is so great about NTU/Graduate Fashion Week?
Bip Ling: I was quite overwhelmed by the different styles, designs and materials. I couldn't believe how well made everything was. The students are so talented!

What kind of style are you interested in right now? And do you often wear the work of graduate designers?
Bip Ling: At the moment I am into the smart, casual cute look. British museum chic Yar! I haven't worn much graduate designers work yet but I sure will do after seeing so many beautiful pieces.
What would you like to design for yourself? Is there anything that's missing in your closet?
Bip Ling: I would like to experiment with different materials, I'm missing more cute tops so I would like to design tops.......AND mini skirts! I am obsessed.
