Our favourite collection from the shows so far, Valli sent huge frothy ballgowns in bold fondant hues down the catwalk and played with layers, texture and retro styling. The dresses of dreams.

With a love of florals, Valli also sent some 50s style shapes down the runway, detailed with the prettiest of flowers and textures.

If Valli was about femininity, Versace's 'fresh allure' show embraced a harder, more vampy edge complete with hardware, leather and deconstructed corsets.

Playing with the boundaries of skirts and trousers, the ball gowns were part bondage, part red carpet dress.

Versace explained the collection was a 'celebration of construction and deconstruction.'

Chanel Couture AW14

Chanel ditched the heels and gave the hair an androgynous edge, but it's still couture, and there's always time for serious sequins.

Ellie Saab Couture AW14

Some sniffed at Ellie Saab's 'crowd pleasing' collection. We say, you can please us with beautiful, dyed lace and intricate detail any day.

Valentino Couture AW14

Things got pretty Grecian at Valentino. They played around with a lot of seductive, see-through fabrics and like Chanel, switched the sky-highs for flat tied up sandals.
