London  Week continued on Sunday with a bizarre show that saw models walking through a farm in the Buckingham countryside - with explosions going off and smoke billowing in the background.

The show took place on Missenden Farm in Amersham, north-west of London, where models presented 26-year-old Paria Farzaneh's Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

But only a select few editors and buyers were able to enjoy the dramatic spectacle due to coronavirus regulations - which almost completely put a stop to the much-anticipated week.

It is one of the only shows this season that is allowed a real-life audience, because of Covid rules banning mass gatherings, with most designers having to make do with a live-streamed event.

The show had a seemingly idyllic setting but the performance quickly took an unexpected turn as explosions and firecrackers went off like gunshots in the peaceful British countryside.

Smoke billowed in the background as the models strutted across the field wearing utility-inspired clothing, with the show aiming to reflect the worldwide climate and echo the current tensions in America. 

Notes distributed at the show detailed how US-based members of Farzaneh's team had been affected by America's wildfires and anti-racism protests during the creation of the collection, the Guardian reported.  

London-based designer Farzaneh, who has Iranian parents, is a rising British star in the industry who combines traditional Iranian workwear and textiles with styles developed in London to create her fluid collections.
