WHO? Marios Schwab

IN A NUTSHELL: Where elsewhere during London Fashion Week we've seen tongue-in-cheek charm and out and out optimism, summer took on a bit of a sinister twist at the hands of Mr Schwab. The collection was veiled in darkness and accompanied by the sound of tense violins worthy of a Hitchcock climax.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: This is the go-to destination for femmes fatales looking to update their summer wardrobe. We loved the cap sleeves curve-skimming pastel dresses overlaid with black netting. For evening, the sequinned leotard was overlaid with a sheer black evening gown was stunning - if a bit of an eyebrow raiser at a black tie event.

F-ROW: Hayley Atwell, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Erin O'Connor and Bobby Gillespie.

VERDICT: Definitely one of our favourite shows so far, Mr Schwab made us wish we were just that little bit cooler so that we could earn a place as one of his film noir heroines.

Marios has also been putting his creative talents to good use at W Hotels. Find out about his project by clicking on the video below:
