Jenny Packham gave us an idea of what we might be seeing on the Oscars red carpet in March with her New York Fashion Week show.

The designer — a well-known favourite of Kate Middleton, who happened to be recycling one of her full-length gowns earlier this week – unveiled a series of beautiful creations.

Backstage, she revealed that her collection was partly inspired by the flowing one-shoulder dresses and silk kaftans that Bianca Jagger wore during the 1970s.

Jenny's army of models showcased beaded cocktails dresses and silky satin gowns in soft caramel and rose pink.

With glitter tulle skirts, Swarovski crystal-adorned mesh, feathered hems and chunky jewel accents, high-octane glamour was key.

She also revealed that she combined her '70s inspiration with another era she admires: the 1930s.

"I play with those two eras a lot," she said. "The '70s did actually take quite a lot of inspiration from the '30s. I love the '70s, the bold colour. There's something very sophisticated about it now, looking back."
