Music around London Fashion Week is always eclectic, though the strongest catwalk soundtracks this year played on nostalgia by drawing from classic rock, Motown and soul. Fleetwood Mac was a popular choice, with Paul Smith playing a megamix and Ashish playing 'Dreams'.

Margaret Howell had an upbeat, 60s selection with Frank Wilson's 'Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)', Spencer Davis Group's 'Keep On Running' and Gloria Jones' 'Tainted Love'.

But it was Daks that pulled off the perfect musical accompaniment. Dinah Washington's 'Mad About The Boy' and Elta James' 'At Last' made us fall in love with their show (on Valentine's Day, no wonder!), while watching the final model saunter across the catwalk to Nina Simone's 'I Put A Spell On You' definitely had us entranced.
