What's the problem? Fashion icon Joanie has made quite a career out of bemoaning the demise of glamour and slamming women's dress sense over recent years. But last September, she did the unthinkable and got her claws out for Kate Winslet. On being shown a picture of Kate at the Venice Film Festival - where the actress wore red carpet frocks by Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham - Joan sniffed: 'Oh, that's a dreadful dress.

    Design duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff presented a subversive spring collection featuring clashing colours, prickly hosiery, fringe, and rubber kitchen gloves. The footwear was certainly the oddest spotted on the catwalk all week, and equally unconventional were the models.

    Models strutted down the Anya Hindmarch catwalk in plain white jumpsuits, but the focus wasn't on the clothing, it was on the accessories. Comical totes and across-body bags were accompanied by equally colourful strappy sandals.

    Held at St. Andrews Church, Simone Rocha's spring collection felt fairly restrained in its palette of black, white, nude and crimson. Drawing on her signature feminine shapes and sensual fabrics, her key looks included sheer trench coats, brocade dresses and whimsical fur trims on necklines and shoes.

    The Tom Ford models appeared shell-shocked by their sexiness; sheer tops with bra cups, strategically placed rhinestones, metallic mini dresses and flared trousers all featured in the spring collection. The look was completed with platform shoes, heavy eye make-up, a nude lip and tousled hair that defined the boundaries of bed head. Click or swipe through to see more of the Tom Ford collection.
