"Notice how even the world's most famous women, like Marilyn or Marlene Dietrich, looked their sexiest in men's clothes," mused designer Jenny Packham backstage, where she revealed the inspiration behind her collection was the dichotomy of the masculine and feminine, and how they have been interpreted by icons like Nick Cave, Patti Smith, David Bowie and Mick Jagger.

The runway result was a departure for Packham, who is not associated with edginess, but one that was still deeply glamorous - something that is very familiar to the designer. Opening the show was the 'Black Betty' floral print sateen suit with embroidered shirt – very rock ’n’ roll, especially when teamed with tousled locks and a flick of blue eyeliner.

Where the looks were feminine, such as with the plunging crepe blouse and chiffon maxi skirt, they came with rock chick accents like gold medallion necklaces and leather mules (by Louboutin). Meanwhile, sequin-encrusted gowns came with bell sleeves and Grecian goddess-style numbers fit for Hollywood came in ombré hues reminiscent of the Seventies.
