Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier, creative and design directors at the helm of Marc by Marc Jacobs, played up "solidarity," a word which was emblazoned across skinny trousers, dresses, shirts, jackets and silk neck scarves.

The mood was very student does punk glamour with a military edge. Models wore heavy leaf print combat trousers with matching cropped jackets, biker boots, tailored button-down coats and sharp shades.

What we loved? The studded berets with badges, the patchwork denim and the biker belt spin on bumbags. The kind of wardrobe that girls wear to change the world.

Over on the Vera Wang catwalk the vibe was more gothic with a sharp, sophisticated edge.

Think all black with flashes of white across tailored shirts and outerwear, think sexy embellished sheers and patent.

Chunky knitwear was oversized, slouchy and paired with leather knee-high boots. All completely wearable - especially for ladies who never stray from a classic black ensemble.

Wang's nod to evening wear was seen across stunning mesh dresses, plunging maxis, velvet pinafores, embellished minis and billowy silk tunic dresses.

If you want really dressy dresses (you know, the full-skirted variety with sweetheart neckline) Oscar de la Renta is your go to.

Creative director Peter Copping, who presented his debut collection four months after de la Renta's death, has catered for women of all ages this season - but he paid particular attention to a younger audience with shorter hemlines and contrasting colours.

Rouched, strapless, on-the-knee cocktail dresses, column maxis and beautiful ball gowns came in floral print, tulle, lace, and appliqué.

Then there was the day wear offering - totally suited to professional Upper East Side women - which saw frilly blouses tucked into A-line skirts, matching two-piece skirt suits, knitted cardigans and court shoes.
