The Daily Telegraph online (www.telegraph.co.uk/fashion/fashionpicturegalleries/) an extensive coverage of all the events and we present some of the highlights.
This was Burberrys first catwalk show at the Londons Fashion Week in eight years, switching from Milan Fashion Week and it certainly made an impact drawing in some very high profile figures such as Samantha Cameron, Lord Mandelson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Frieda Pinto, Dev Patel, Liv Tyler, Eemma Watson, Mary Kate Olsen, as well as the fashion editors of French Vogue, American Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.
Burberrys rose-beige and lilac, feathered leather coats came with ruched, skintight leggings or silk trousers, rolled up to show pastel socks with strappy cone-heeled platform sandals or high-heeled combat boots.
|Guccis idea in Milan was silver latches, cinches,
pulleys, and technical clasps were all used to create a futuristic, super-sexy, body-conscious silhouette
|As vibrant as ever, the more sporty younger Emporio Armani line|
Fendis spring 2910 a collection of soft and pale materials and a flowing, tulle gown, interwoven with feathered strips of fur
and worn over a satin top and knickers, closed their show.
Giorgio Armanis men's waistcoats but the trend for spring/summer menswear was for a mix of tailoring and dressed down,
with roomy bags and sportswear shoes evoking a travel theme. Gianfranco Ferré likes white boots with suits.
On the other side of the Atlantic Ralph Lauren made quite an impression with a sensible collection
The fierce, structured platforms made an impact at the New York show. Sharp, architectural-style heels, contrasted with rope-like detail adorning the feet, in pastel blues to eye-catchingly shiny gold, made everyone take note of these details
