INSPIRATION: A minimalist journey of clean lines and artful tailoring

TOP LOOKS: Black crepe jumpsuit with deep V-neck and black mesh bodysuit; aubergine satin, crepe and mesh dress with aubergine tights; beige wool bouclé jacket with beige leather tee and beige leather pant

: Platform wedge ankle boots in black, grey, beige, bone, taupe, tan, cognac, graphite and aubergine

WHO WAS THERE: Maggie Rizer, Leigh Lezark, Melissa George

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Max Azria was in the mood to pare things down for autumn/winter. His streamlined minimalism came in the form of boxy shoulders, structured dresses and jackets and a palette of mineral tones and black.

The platform wedge boots gave each look a vaguely futuristic feel. The black ribbed dresses at the end were a nod to one of Azria's other lines, Hervé Léger.
