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.

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:
