Social media ruled London Fashion Week this year, with thousands of smartphone-enabled fashionistas giving us a (square, faux-vintage) peek at life in the fashion fast lane. We’ve raided the #lfw on tag Instagram to bring you the behind-the-scenes images and trends you may have missed. Carly-Ann Clements

Gnomes invaded London:

The kids were cute:

But the animals weren’t always loving it:

And it wouldn’t be fashion week without ‘Multimedia Post Pop Artist’ @Pandemonia:

@JemmaDuong got hit by a taxi and just didn’t give a…

Plus, there was loads of Berroca to help the healing process:

Catering was sparse at some shows:

But plentiful at others:

Either way, there was plenty of fatty food to be had:

All that food must have inspired this hairdo:

Someone tried to emulate Anna Wintour’s bob but got it ever-so-slightly wrong:

Jesse Pinkman (well, Aaron Paul) tried to live the luxurious lifestyle only to be left confused and slightly scared:

Victoria Beckham was feeling a bit sketchy:

KEY TREND – not showing your face:

If you have to have your face in the picture, be sure to cover it with your phone:

Or with a mask:

Or with a sequinned tea cosy:

And if completely desperate, a pair of oversized green glasses:

Alternatively, pulling a face is acceptable:

Altogether now:

Bang on trend, ladies. Bang. On. Trend.
