The AW16 presentations around the world are coming to an end, but what did London show us for lingerie style?

February is always jam packed full of award shows, red carpets and of course, lots of fashion. We love it - it leaves us feeling fresh and ready for Spring! Whether it's the moving speeches from the BAFTAs and Oscars, the new hair hacks to try or which shoes to be seen stepping out in, we always come away from this time feeling inspired.
Of course, last week we had London's Autumn/Winter 2016 presentations, which was a whirlwind of the best British talent, stand-out style statements and inspiring trends. We've taken a look at some of the looks we loved the most and show you how to style them up with some of our key Bluebella pieces so you can be *so* ahead of the season!
We were enraptured with Alexander McQueen's return to London, which was a shimmering and surreal collection made up of dramatic golds, pink chiffon and boudoir-esque lace. We fell in love with this gorgeous gold gown, exuding feminine elegance in a fierce way. Emulate its fabulous feel by wearing Bluebella's Tala collection, which we have designed exclusively in-house (as with all our styles!) and its intricate design of gorgeous gold floral leaf will leave you feeling a million dollars.
Another divine style-steal from Sarah Burton's magnificent McQueen show - this time we fell in love with the sheer sassiness of this bare-all blazer and trouser combo. Tucked underneath the sharp-suited jacket is the contrasting feel of delicate lace, giving this no-messin' look an instant feminine feel. If you dare to bare, emulate the look with our Ella Soft Bra style, which is a gorgeous combination of soft satin, luxurious lace and delicate embroidery.
Always a typically flamboyant affair, Ashish's bright and bold show was a spectacle to behold, with an explosion of 70's glamour in the form of sequins, shimmer and multi-coloured afros. Totally disco inspired, we loved the deep plunges and skin-tight shapes. If you want to ravish in rainbow colours and dangerously deep necklines, then Lola's new red colour is the one for you. Team with sky-high heels and black skinny jeans to bring out the ultimate dancefloor diva in you.
Mesh was one material that stood out for us across the catwalk shows, featured across a variety of different shows. We loved SImone Rocha's contrasting hues of light, neutral pastels with dark, gothic moods and the see-through mesh added a touch of glorious glamour. Mesh is a super easy way of showing off your skin without revealing too much and we've used it in some of our favourite Bluebella styes this season. Try the Blake Body for a similar high-neck impact and team with a dramatic black duster for an evening-ready look.
We started with McQueen and we are finishing with McQueen too because quite frankly, we couldn't resist. We spotted this collared style, which opened up into a peek-a-boo cut-away and, after just launching our brand new Maddox style, we couldn't help but love it. Maddox is an opulent, eye-catching collar bra that transforms your lingerie look into one you've never had before. Too good to cover up, it transforms your decolletage into a dazzling fashion statement!
