The SS18 colour palette remained simple, yet sophisticated; with navy and cream, meeting midnight and sky blues. Rohmir favours v-neck or crew-cut necklines, her dresses classically tailored to create a sleek finish which compliments the female silhouette.

Adding to the aura of elegance and glamour, Rohmir’s SS collection keeps its “Sparkling” promise, with beads and sequins studding the gowns and decorating the hemlines, while side-slit skirts and open backs give the collection a touch of risqué.

A stand-out piece came in the form a beautiful white wrap-around gown, one of two pieces decorated from top to toe in delicate applique flowers.

Ruffled collars and flared sleeves were just a couple more standout features of the collection, which was not simply walked, but theatrically performed by its talented cast of models, beautifully made up with 30s inspired hair and classic smoky eyes credit to Kryolan UK and Tony and Guy.

Confidently showcased, designer Olga Roh put on a truly outstanding showcase on every level of detail, earning herself a celebratory walk of the runway in one of her own stunning designs.

You know how it is when you need a haircut or a beauty treatment and you want to know what's available in your area and how much it will cost?

Well the team from Rock Pamper Scissors decided to create an online service where you can pick the sort of treatment you want - haircut, colouring, eyelash extensions and hair extenstion and check out the options.

It's perfect for people who like to be spontaneous - you can look for an appointment for as soon possible or the same day you book.  And there are some great discounts available, with many salons offering special offers for first time visitors to the site or for students.

You'll be surprised at the money you can save by using Rock Pamper Scissors to book hair appointments online. I took a look around Rock Pamper Scissors to pick out some of the best deals. So here are three of the best hairdressers in London.

I found a cut and blow dry with a senior stylist at The Soho Salon in Carlisle Street for just £37.10 - a 30 per cent discount from the usual price of £53.00.

There are also great deals on beauty and pampering treatments. You can book a Ladies Vinylux full pedicure at The Covent Garden Salon in Endell Street for £31.50, a full 30 per cent below the usual price of £45.00.

I also found an excellent discount for massage. Body Essential, at Harrow Place, Shoreditch, currently has a full body massage for women on offer for just £45.60 - 20 per cent cheaper than the usual price of £57.00.

The site is easy to use, with photographs of each of the salons and a brief description of the services on offer. You can search according to price, or location, and it is easy to browse appointments and book online. If you want to know more about a particular salon you follow a link which takes you to a description of the business, a mission statement and tells you about the different sorts of treatments on offer.

The design of the site is clean, clear and simple to use and it has the odd little quirky entertaining touch. For instance if you are browsing hair and beauty treatments you can choose to search for the cheapest, for the most expensive, for the nearest = or if you are feeling mischievous - you can choose to search by "magic".
