For the past five days, London Fashion Week transformed the capital into a hotbed of catwalk shows from the likes of Burberry, Anya Hindmarch, Tom Ford and Temperley London. Newer designers including Felder Felder and Bora Aksu also lit up runways with their stylish creations.

For those who could not attend, IBTimes UK reveals the highlights of the week.

Nude

The sheer trend is set to play a key role in 2015 as many designers explored elements of reveal-conceal trickery in their collections.

Models sashayed down the runway in see-through nipple baring tops and underwear revealing skirts.

Tom Ford's rock-inspired collection took it to another level with a daring bondage-inspired mesh and leather dress.
