And with a gentle nod to next season, John Galliano at Chrsitian Doir showed powerfully feminine silhouettes and oversize costume jewellery, as well as some new ideas we might just see on the catwalk for s/s 2009 in September. These included front bustle skirts, 1920's flapper-chic, croc skin jackets and ultra sexy nipped in waists.
Seated front and centre for the first day of shows Claudia Schiffer, Eva Mendes and Janet Jackson were on hand to admire the collections and are going to be staying in town for tomorrow's highlight - Chanel.
Don't miss our coverage from couture, as it happens - come back tomorrow for more.
