  • Gold rush

  • Modern romance

    Following on from their Spring/Summer 2014 show last year, which was based around a watery theme, the Felder Felder A/W collection featured more ethereal, romantic looks with a modern edge. (Getty Images)

  • Double whammy

  • Pale fire

    There was an ethereal mood at Lulu Liu, with a soft, largely white palette – plus hair and make-up that completed the pale-and-wan vibe. (Getty Images)

  • Stomping ground

    Towering, clompy wooden platforms − seemingly dipped in green paint – made a dramatic statement at the Lulu Liu show, and contrasted with the soft, light palette of much of the collection. (Getty Images)

  • Mountain high

    There was more than a hint of Heidi at the Bora Aksu show, with pinafore-style touches and plaited up-dos. The palette of primary and jewel-like colours completed a bold statement. (Getty Images)

  • Monochrome set

    Loose bomber jackets with long gloves, and swirling-graphic, printed sweaters in a sloppy fit were featured at the Jean Pierre Braganza show – all in a sharp, monochrome palette. (Getty Images)

  • Past master

    Jean Pierre Braganza sent out bold, Old-Master inspired prints. Sharply-tailored coats were short-sleeved and styled with long gloves, creating an elegant silhouette. (Getty Images)

  • True blue

    There were angular but wearable silhouettes at J JS Lee, including a steely cobalt-blue ensemble with cream-backed cable-knit jumper and tailored trousers. (Getty Images)

Golden gowns, painterly prints and more as the catwalk shows get started in the UK capital.
