Sad face, it's the last day of London Fashion Week. But smiley face, it was AWESOME. Both new and old Brit talent shone bright, with an array of memorable and surely, agenda-setting collections hitting the runways of our glorious but rainy capital. Today we saw another stellar collection from Simone Rocha, had a sensory overload at Anya Hindmarch's all-singing, all-dancing cuddly-toy-conveyor-belt presentation and saw a glimpse into the fashion future thanks to the fresh designer names at Fashion East. Here's what made the final day so very fantastic…

1. Anya Hindmarch's supermarket sweep

[Instagram: @Grazia_Live, @charliegrazia]

A spectacle to end all spectacles, Anya's extravagant, genius and innately charming presentations have become something of f fashion week favourite over the past few seasons. Today's was no exception. Inspired by shopping itself – with the idea sparking from a barcode – a monochrome striped catwalk and series of conveyor belts were stomped by well-accessorised young ladies and male shop-assistants cum dancers. Her bags took everyday consumer goods – like Kellogs cornflakes or Daz washing powder – and turned them into kitsch-cool bits of arm candy. The show then ending with an impressive dance routine from the chaps, and, though holes in the barcoded wall, a band played 'Come'on Get Happy' - so we did.

2. Fashion East's new talent

Fashion East's alumni – Claire Barrow and Ryan Lo – moved on this fashion week to free up two spaces alongside cult-fave, Ashley Williams. Today's newbies were Louise Alsop and Helen Lawrence. All three socked it to ‘em: Mis Williams’ fun cat motifs and slinky pink separates lived up to her Twitter account name: @HappyAshleyLand. Helen, who specialises in knitwear, delivered savagely pulled-out-of-shape jumpers and distressed denim, while Louise Alsop’s gridwork put a new spin on graphic prints.

3. Leaf Greener, Elina Halimi and Tiffany Hsu and co. give their best street styling

@Grazia_Live have been snapping their fave street stylers on Instagram

Playing some of the most adventurous style cards on the table not just on one day but all, this well-turned-out trio didn't let the street style snappers down. Even in the rain, gail-force winds and serious brrr, out were the pins, the designer goodies and much accessorising.

4. An abudance of fluffy stuff

The catwalk and major street trend for fluffy stuff is going to get even chubbier next season! Crazy shearling and monogolian lambswool shimmied down the runways of today's shows like Marques'Almeida and Simone Rocha, but it was just as present on the sidewalks. Faux fur stoles, pom-pom bag charms, feather-ball earrings and wildling coats have been a popular choice for the fash pack.

5. Models with short hair

Sam Rollinson, Harmony Boucher and Alina Levichkina all walked at Christopher Kane [Style.com]

Once upon a time model folk in general had to have lustrous long hair in order for the stylists to do whatever they so desired. But this fashion week's casting has proven that those with a bob will most likely get the job. Or even better - a really close crop. One of our new favourites is Alina Levichkina who has walked at Christopher Kane and more, but there's Sam Rollinson, Harmony Boucher, Edie Campbell and Lida Fox, too. It's enough to get you down t'hair salon.

6. Our fabulous Mercedes-Benz wheels

@Grazia_Live: Our Fashion Assistant @joshnewissmith posing on our @mercedesbenzuk

Devastatingly, today we had to say goodbye to our 3 drivers and their brand-spanking-new Mercedes-Benz GLAs. We've gotten rather used to our on-call chauffeurs, their super organised schedules, piles of sweets and endlessly replenished bottles of water. They also made a pretty good backdrop to our 'what we're wearing' pics. Oh life without them! Sob... Until next season!
