We've only ever featured ready-to-wear shows here, but in a break from tradition thought we would highlight some of the couture shows this year.

Up first is Lagerfeld's show for Chanel which alternated between emphasising and de-emphasising the waist.  Some silhouettes looked wasp-like with their constricting middles while others featured drop-waisted, blouson dresses.  Sporty elements were thrown in for good measure and we saw models wearing trainers, sequinned cycle shorts, elbow and kneepads and fanny packs.
