London designers won standing ovations and drew celebrity onlookers as London Fashion Week barreled through its fourth day.
Tanya Sarne, the designer behind the label Ghost, wowed crowds with her sheer "fairy" dresses, while veteran Betty Jackson said 1950s films inspired her clean-cut collection.
Women who wear the Ghost label are "contrary characters," according to Tanya Sarne, the eclectic designer behind the hot label.
And for the 1999 Spring/Summer season, that means sheer dresses and skirts, sewn with a toss of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.
Pop star Gwen Stephanie was on hand for Sunday's show, saying later there was "No Doubt" why the Ghost line is so popular.
And though Stephanie didn't want to comment for the camera, it was the sheer filmy-ness of the dresses that caught the eye of another up-and-coming actor celebrity who attended the show.
Nick Moran, star of the smash British hit "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," said he was impressed by the clothes, and the models.
"I didn't really know what to expect, but I loved the evening wear, you know, the sort of low, lacy dresses. It's all very Cinderella, very fairy tale, I really liked it."
(Off camera: A lot of see-through this year. You liked that bit?)
"Yeah, I got no complaints about that."

And it was Super model Yasmin le Bon who stole the show on designer Betty Jackson's catwalk.
The designer who dressed Absolutely Fabulous character Patsy Stone in the B-B-C's send-up of the fashion industry received a standing ovation for her spring collection.
Knee-length skirts and three-quarter length trousers and flat shoes were the standard in a collection Jackson said was inspired by 1950s movies.
Jackson, 49, won royal approval with an M-B-E in 1987, and received praise on Friday from critics and buyers who flocked to London Fashion week from around the globe.
For her evening collection, Jackson paraded a mix of elegant gowns and more casual silk skirts topped by crocheted sweaters.
Splashes of red and crimson interspersed the dark navy, black, khaki and grey.
