Tom Ford's silhouettes were powerful at London Fashion Week.

The designer showed his Spring/Summer 14 collection during the series of catwalk shoes, boasting pieces that were sure to catch people's attention.

Shoulders seemed inspired by the '80s and were given a strong, boxy look in many of the designs.

One white furry jacket had accentuated shoulders and was cropped and teamed with crisp white trousers.

Besides the big shoulders, glitter was the main element of the show.

A trouser suit was made completely out of aqua sparkly material and featured a high neck, skinny-leg pants and matching high heels.

While this was a more covered-up look, other models showed off their endless legs in tiny mini dress.

Again in glitter material, they came in colours including dark red, black and silver.

While some were made of opaque shimmering fabric, other numbers were part sheer with glitter detail covering the models' modesty.

Leather might more often than not be associated with biker jackets, but Tom turned the material into tiny party dresses.

Models sashayed down the runway in brown leather frocks that finished above mid-thigh.

Other numbers incorporated the traditional leather jackets worn with a mini of the same material.

British actor Colin Firth sat front row to watch Tom's designs come down the runway.

Giles Deacon also showed yesterday, offering up a melancholy Spring/Summer 14 collection.

The designer showed pieces printed with sombre photographs in dark colours.

A slip dress featured a picture of a woman gazing into the distance, while a playsuit had a similar print and a sheer top that left little to the imagination.

Later on in the show things lightened up a little thanks to pink and purple lip prints on dresses and jackets.

London Fashion Week finishes today with lines by Anya Hindmarch and Simone Rocha.
