Unleash the dark side in you

This  season sees a new sexual sensation on the catwalk with Fetish being one of the main trends influencing designers. There is no hiding under oversized knits this winter, with leather, PVC and lace making its way down the catwalk and on to our high street.

Things got steamy at the Alexander McQueen show with spray on leggings, leather gloves, metal heals and leather harnesses attached to the models, it was not one for the faint hearted.

Designers such as Lavin, Mugler and Michael Kors seemed to embrace the seductive and sexual style with class. Louis Vuitton took Fetish to the next level with French maids, bondage and blind folds, however many of the dresses were designed with peter pan collars giving a hint of innocence to the collection. 

The high street has already embraced this style with stores such as Topshop designing the popular bodycon dress with lace detailing and Wearhouse with this spot mesh cape dress that is heavily influenced by Marc Jacobs where polkadots are heavily featured thought his collection.
