Down goes the curtain on next season's HC catwalk shows in Paris, an extravaganza in every colour under the sun.

From bubble shapes that looked made for the rain to new takes on smocks, bright pieces that are going to light up winter, and the comeback of YSL’s iconic smoking jacket, sophistication was the order of the day.

The economic gloom resulting from the credit crunch has hit the world of haute couture, but while the designers are all out to sell, they're staying true to their dreams. 

We take you through the catwalk creations that will translate into next season's trends.
