The look Funereal Victoriana met a regal Edwardiana as cropped corsets and fountain necklines walked next to stunning feather and fetishist leather gowns.

Key pieces An ink black, feather-trimmed ballgown was teamed with a stark, crisp white shirt and cinched in with a demi corset. Playful art deco prints with a hint of William Morris’s floral interpretations featured on body-skimming silk dresses, while a fresco print in champagne silk and lustre yarns added lightness.

Commercial appeal This was a standout show, as Giles Deacon did a U-turn from the playful, cartoon-inspired nature of his spring 11 collection. Expect to see gothic and undertaker-inspired styles on the high street as a result. Deacon joined French fashion house Emanuel Ungaro last April - which may have influenced this highly competent collection.
