Drawing on her signature vintage aesthetic, the range features beautiful dresses in an autumnal colour palette – their USP, for us, had to be the attention to detail and quality of the fabrics.

The creations are, importantly, super flattering – the dresses "allow you room to have a good dinner and go dancing afterwards," Dawn, who is married to actor Chris O'Dowd, told us.

As well as the 70s-inspired maxidress, a standout piece is the flared skirt emblazoned with quotes from Dawn's favourite books.

Each look from the collection is named after inspirational women who’ve inspired Dawn to create the brand – some include fellow TV presenter Caroline Flack and Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney.

The collection follows on from the success of BOB Vintage collection, Dawn's website featuring her vintage edit.

The BOB by Dawn O’Porter Ready-to-Wear collection launches exclusively online today at BOBbyDOP.com with prices ranging from £160 to £700 and full international shipping available.
