A former Hackney fashion student whose designs have been bagged by Lady Gaga makes her debut at London Fashion Week today (Monday).

Rhiannon Jones, who studied at Hackney Community College in Falkirk Street until July, is unveiling her designs at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout Exhibition in central London under her fashion label Bolshie.

At just 18 years old, she is among the youngest designers to officially showcase a collection at the world-famous week.

Rhiannon, of Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, left school at 15 and moved to Hackney from Beverley in east Yorkshire two years ago to pursue her dream of being a fashion designer.

Her new collection, unveiled today, has already been snapped up by freaky fashionista Lady Gaga who picked a pair of white shorts and a jacket.

“I can’t wait, I’m really excited,” said Rhiannon ahead of the show.

“I have been working all summer - it has been a lot of hard work and late nights.

“My new collection is slightly more serious and grown up, but I like to let my work do the talking.”
