We’ve had the all white collections from Elie Saab and Chanel, so Basil Soda gave us a nearly all nude/taupe presentation for Spring 2010 Couture.

As Sophie and I watch the show the colour theme was evident until the penultimate aqua gown hit the runway.

The Lebanese designer has an impressive list of Hollywood fans. They will love this collection as he presented many stunning red carpet-ready gowns and cocktail dresses which ranged from light and floaty to heavily embellished.

We did see some bold shoulders, but there was also a lot of gold fringing and razor-shaped metal appliqués.

My favourite was the nude gown with the tulle tiered skirt and razor appliqués.

The finale gown was exquisite with its embellished details, mermaid hem and 10ft train.
