WHO?: Jonathan Saunders

IN A NUTSHELL: A Mad Men era housewife escapes to Miami and learns to show a little bit of flesh.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: The early 60s era dresses. Our favourites were frocks done in candy colour ombréd tones. If you are a bride to be looking for something subtly sexy, get your hands on the final look of the show: a long sleeved off-white gown that at first glance could be sheer, but is actually a tantalising optical illusion.

THE F-ROW: Who could tell? Like last season there were only two very, very long rows snaking their way around the venue. There were loads of women wearing Saunders' earlier creations and Susie Bubble.

THE VERDICT: Saunders has once again created a collection of clothing women will love to wear. The silhouettes were flattering and the lengths were forgiving. He struck a perfect balance between sex appeal and classic tailoring in a collection that felt at once familiar and fresh.
