10. The incredible prints at Dolce & Gabbana

An array of blue fish, yellow suns, playing cards, butterflies, nectarines and multi-coloured flowers sounds garish on paper but it definitely worked on the runway.

9. Sticking with D&G and the return of models

Don’t get us wrong, we loved the #DGMillennials Fall 2017 show which showcased the best and brightest insta-stars but we’re happy to see the return of fresh model talent on the runway.

8. The return of 80s Power Dressing at Gucci

80s style shoulder pads give the impression of broad shoulders and subsequently create a more masculine frame. Its unsurprising that they were all the rage during a period where women were edging higher up the ranks in the male-dominated workforce. Could Gucci’s revival of shoulder-pads be a comment on this current third-wave of the feminist movement?

7. Prada carried on the theme of female empowerment with the military-style show

I am suggesting militant women in a very practical way… through clothes, which is what I do.” [Vogue Runway]

The days of lamenting over losing one of my earrings are long behind me.

1. Everything at Versace

Dontella celebrated the life of her late brother Gianni Versace in the best way possible by reviving some of his most legendary looks. The return of 90s supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni, and Helena Christensen will go down as ‘a moment’ in fashion history. I’m also certain that sales of anti-wrinkle cream soared after this show – those goddesses are ageless!
