At just 28 years-old and three years in, Molly Goddard has already single-handedly sparked a trend (tulle, in case you're lost) and made her brand a must-see at London Fashion Week, no mean feat, as any young designer will tell you.

Her show took place in The Tate's Switch House extension and guests walked in to what looked like an abandoned dinner party, before tulle-bedecked models came and took their seats, one by one.

Goddard's love of popsicle colours was as present as ever and her signature smocking was out in full force. We're reckoning her metallic ballet slippers, complete with elasticated strap, will be top of many a fashion lover's wish list too.

Faustine Steinmetz does it again with denim

The doyenne of denim did it again, using the universal fabric to create pieces of breathtaking craftmanship.

A bedazzled denim suit encrusted with thousands of beads sparkled geode-like (perhaps a nod to our current simmering obsession with the power of crystals?), while another artfully used pulled yarns to create a pleasing pattern.

A playful use of shibori and slice-and-restitch styling details ensured Steinmetz kept every piece of excitement she's built up so far.

House of Holland toes the Americana line

To the wild, wild west for Henry Holland's latest collection.

The exuberant designer said this collection was about celebrating America, and followed on smoothly from NYFW's numerous odes to Americana.

Titled 'Daddy, where's my car?', it was a riot of colours, motifs and classic rodeo detailing, like fringing, cowboy boots and 'yeehaw' flares, mixed with on-topic oversized puffers jackets and slogan hoodies, and grungy, 90s-esque dresses.

Versus celebrates the return of the Supers

The Supers are back, so proclaimed Donatella Versace, who proudly boasted of-the-moment sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, as well as Taylor Hill, Stella Maxwell and Adwoa Aboah, in her catwalk cast for Versace sister-line Versus.

Where House of Holland was a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll, Versus was punk-cum-goth, with a little 90s rave culture and sports-luxe thrown in.

It was everything you'd expect from Versace's edgier label-mate - bold, brash and screaming for cool kids confident enough to wear Versus with pride - quite literally as the brand name adorned everything from ankle straps on shoes to chokers.
