McQueen has never been a brand to shy away from the exceptional. Dark, eerie and complex, the labels identity took on this season's fetish trend with gusto. Leather harnessing, corset laced boots, fur-hemmed dresses and metal-capped hair combined to create a beautiful yet forcefully dark look.

This humdinger of a dress from Wallis doesn't just give a nod to the fetish trend, it devours it. Cheat the over-knee lattice boots with corset-inspired tights like these from Irish online hosiery specialist, Dress my legs.ie. These lace-up shoe boots by Kurt Geiger are strikingly similar to a current McQueen design and a steal in comparison to their retail price of over €700.

To pay homage to the catwalk hair, arrange black or silver metal clips side by side across the head to create the effect. And to finalise the look, keep your skin pale and make-up nude.
