THE five-day fashion extravaganza is over and the trends we''ll all be wearing next spring have been logged, snapped and lusted after. More than 80 collections were unveiled at London Fashion Week but certain key shows really help shape the style forecasts. Here's our round-up of the catwalk trends: ANTONI & ALISON Celebrating their 25th anniversary in fashion, Antoni & Alison opened London Fashion Week with a live brass band to mark the occasion.

Entitled New Work, the design duo went with a fresh aesthetic, drawing on artworks that were hand painted and applied as bold prints; brush marks, ink drawings, spray paint and even black felt tip pens. And the shapes? Birthday dresses, of course.

JULIEN MACDONALD Shunning the catwalk''s bright lights for one season, Wales' Julien Macdonald invited key press to his atelier to present a Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct inspired collection. Named after exotic islands, each piece oozed glamour, from red carpet-ready embellished gowns to itsybitsy swimsuits teamed with flowing ombre capes. A-listers ahoy: these frocks are a surefire hit for award season.

JASPER CONRAN Forget shoes next season, Jasper Conran''s models went barefoot on a faux grass catwalk to match the easy breezy California vibe. Think indigo denim, brodarie anglaise and white cotton suiting that had lazy summer days written all over them.

Pant suits provided a sleek silhouette but it was the flowing halterneck maxis that had the fashion pack dreaming of cocktails at sunset.

MOSCHINO CHEAP & CHIC Dig out your flares! Moschino''s collection had a distinctly late Sixties and early Seventies feel. Orange pantsuits made an appearance along with dungarees, bright colour block dresses and a pineapple shoulder bag that got everyone''s mouths watering. As for footwear, models either towered in wedges or strutted in bright sporty trainers.

MATTHEW WILLIAMSON In another anniversary show, Matthew Williamson referenced his first Electric Angels collection 15 years ago by mixing aqua blue and hot pink. More punchy palettes, embellishment and embroidery followed in Williamson''s design trademarks along with ombre aplenty. Shoes were the party piece of the day - models strutted in leg-lengthening platforms to launch the designer''s new footwear collection.

TEMPERLEY LONDON There were wide brim hats, lace gloves and full circle skirts for Temperley''s Return to Elegance catwalk. …
