Make-up artists at fashion shows have a tendency to get a bit, well, experimental - resulting in catwalk looks that you wouldn't dream of wearing in real life.
After autumn's Sixties fixation, designers inched forward for spring, landing squarely in the era of bell-bottoms, platforms and feathered hairdos (and that's just the men).
Apart from the odd designer who specialises in it, denim doesn't tend to get much of a look-in on the catwalks, with high-end houses favouring textiles that command a higher price on the retail racks.
Now that the autumn fashion shows are done and dusted, we can get back to the task at hand; namely, filling our wardrobes with fresh new season fashion.
