Milan-based Filipino designer Korn Taylor did the finale show, with a 30-piece formal wear for boys and girls. 

"The theme behind this collection as you see -- red, blue and yellow -- is inspired by the Philippine flag. We are representing the Philippines and doing the finale walk, I was emotional," said Chona Bacaoco, business partner to the Korn Taylor brand.

Thirteen-year-old school boy Josh Birch Jones from Kent also presented his latest evening wear collection. 

He started sketching at a young age, inspired by his mother's wardrobe, seeing her beautiful collection of clothes. 

"I started designing from when I was old enough to pick up a pencil," said Jones.
