Designer Don O'Neill told his audience in New York he was taking them to the 'dark side' this season - certainly the black lacquered catwalk and dark fringed curtain were a sure sign that this was no little princess collection.

THEIA's 'dark side' referred to a fantasy world of a 1920s opium den and the loss of inhibitions. The collection showed how brides today can be whatever they dream of as, as unique as they wish and have the freedom to wear whatever pleases them.

Opening to 'Diamonds Are Forever' - a reference to O'Neill's jewellery collaboration with pieces by Gumuchian -  he sent out a fully sequinned silver slip dress with white faux fur chubby on a model with finger waved hair and smoky eyes.

Satin cut on the bias, fringing and swagged necks and backs featured heavily in an update on the flapper dress. Super sheer dresses in a smoke blue geisha print and white crystal dragon print were a big hit with the photographers, with poppy red and black satin dresses a reference to the opium flower itself.

And the standout dresses? An ice-white lurex, frayed fringe v-neck gown and a red silk organza ball gown with jet black lace embroidery.
