After a month of designer shows presenting their new collections and star-studded front-rows, fashion week has officially come to an end.

Kicking off in New York, moving onto London, then Milan and finally closing in Paris, there were many memorable moments and these were the ones that got the internet talking.

Kanye West debuted collection for Adidas

It was never going to be a quiet affair; Kanye launched his capsule collection for the sportswear brand featuring bomber jackets, oversized sweaters and distressed jumpers for men. For women, it was more feminine, featuring body-conscious silhouettes - tube dresses, running t-shirts and cropped tops.

Zoolander takes over at Valentino

Perhaps the biggest story of fashion week; actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made a surprise appearance on the Valentino catwalk, suggesting a sequel Zoolander film is in the works (Zoolander 2). The duo also posed backstage with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The internet went mad.

Christophe Lemaire’s boob bag

The French designer got the fashion crowd talking about his rather cheeky accessory. Now that Lemaire is no longer at Hermes and is focusing on his own line, he seems to be in the mood for some fun.

Chanel’s brassiere

Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais in Paris into a highly-personalised brassiere to showcase his autumn/winter 2015 collection for Chanel, which saw Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne swap the catwalk for the bar where they were seen chatting and nibbling on croissants.
