Dozens of fashion weeks have passed and numerous new trends and creative marvels have been discovered. Scouring through countless pictures and hours of footage made me realise that my favourite trends are those hidden behind the eloquently-conducted shows, amidst the backstage pandemonium.

The B&W Nail: A bit of black and a bit of white and we’re good to go, regardless of the choice of outfit.
