London Fashion Week 2015 has now come to an end: It was trully a great ride. And now it is time to prepare ourselves for some of the biggest trends we're set to love in the coming season. Get ready ladies, take notes and we break them down for you.

1Print design ace Jonathan Saunders' 60s optical-art silhouettes offered plenty of retro appeal. Jackets, dresses and knitwear were stamped with a swirling tri-color motif while oversized eyewear, roll necks and long lace-up boots provided quirky footnote.

2 Mary Katrantzou's "heritage opulence meets techy utopia" collection (below, right) sought to redefine modern luxury. Garment surfaces were crowded with eye-popping texture and detail in luscious hues and rectilinear shapes enabled Kantrantzou to explore fresh territory.

3 This sequin siren dress (extreme right, extreme top) and matching on-trend tassled scarf by Somerset-born designer Alice Temperley was one of the collection's standout looks. Full marks for unveiling this silhouette just hours before the Oscars got underway.

4 London Fashion Week designers old and new are loving leg warmers (second from right, extreme top). First Vivienne Westwood, now 2014 Fashion Scout Merit Award winner Xiao Li whose collection featured cartoon-like prints.

5A chic ensemble (second from left, extreme top) in earthy tones and natural fabrics from Margaret Howell's classic aristo-chic collection for Fall 15. Necklines and waistlines were high and overcoats and trousers were decidely boyish.

6 Royal favorite Issa brings sexy back with a city-slicking 2-in-1, two-tone black and navy mesh dress (above, left), featuring figure-flattering draping. Seeing double yet?

7 Fall15 fashion favorites fur and 70s florals (extreme left, extreme top) rocked the Topshop Unique A/W 15/16 runway show at Tate Britain.
