The look Gothic rock chicks evolved into heavenly creatures on Julien Macdonald’s catwalk as the designer kicked back against his ultra-femininity of spring 11. Death-metal music roared out onto the catwalk as Macdonald courted controversy in a former church in London’s Mayfair.

Key pieces Girls marched down the catwalk as if en route to a séance, in gowns with trains, and short front hemlines (also seen for spring 11) with high feather collars, devoré and cobwebbed knits. Ethereal gowns followed, with gold brocade and fern embellishment and inspired by the spring 11 Alexander McQueen collection.

Commercial appeal This was Macdonald at his best, a collection that equally satisfied the front row contingent and the Saturday night set who save to splurge on his creations, with ambitious gowns, commercial furs and knitwear.
