Mood board: Alexander McQueen’s much loved symbolism of feathers, flowers, butterflies and birds were the foundation of this collection, which Sarah Burton elevated to more ethereally feminine heights. The additional motif of a pocketwatch, embroidered on coats in the very first looks added a sense of suspense and mystery.

Best in show: Towards the finale, glamourous dresses that are sure to reappear on the red carpet were dramatic and daring in their sensual sheerness. Gold lamé paneling, floral embroidery and the many tiny golden particles scattered all over, placed this collection near the realm of haute couture.

Finishing touches: Silver and gold floral hairpieces combined with chunky chains placed between messy wisps of hair continued the bejewelled theme in a way we’ve gotten used to from Burton, mixing the delicate and refined with the severe.
