As New York fashion week ends and London takes off, here is our roundup of our favourite shows so far.

Alexander Wang put on a spectacle not only on, but also off the catwalk. This Spring/Summer 15 collection comprised of a mix of sporty and tailored designs with key pieces including foam injected leather dresses and sneaker influenced garments. His array of bright colours was contrasting next to a grunge palette for his sleek designs. The amazing show didn’t stop there; the designer crashed an underground rave as a post-catwalk celebration with a semi-naked Miley Cyrus in attendance (if this was any other celebrity, then you may be shocked; but Miley wearing nothing on her top half other than a pair of ice cream cone pasties is what one would now describe as ‘normal’ for this singer).

Muted tones, oxblood red, and pink florals were the essence of Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. This collection consisted of a uniform style of dress with sharp silhouettes yet still remained to have a feminine edge. Military inspired jackets were fastened with contrasting leather belts. Ribbed knitted dresses and sweaters were another key element to VB’s latest collection, as well as matching sets consisting of tailored shirts and trousers/skirts combinations. After yet another glorious spectacle of designs, we are even more excited for the opening of her debut store on London’s Dover Street.

Oscar de la Renta conformed to all of his signature styles; the femininity, the polished finish, and the delicate colour palettes. Karlie Kloss’ recent statement perfectly sums up this talented designer; ‘There is no one on earth who makes a woman feel more beautiful than Oscar de la Renta’. His latest collection had a youthful feel with gingham designs in pastels and monochrome, midriff bearing tops teamed with full skirts, exquisite lace and fringe detailing, and stunningly intricate floral prints. This display of amazing designs was complimented by a white catwalk and a flower-covered backdrop, giving us the feeling of living within a fairy-tale.
