Victoria, 40, wrapped up warm to brave the British weather in a chic navy blue coat with a gold chain detail, and matching trousers. The stylish mother-of-four accessorised with a matching bag, her trademark oversized sunglasses and completed the look with a pair of her beloved stilettos.

Victoria enjoyed a successful show on Sunday as she presented her Autumn/Winter 2015 collection, while husband David and their four children Brooklyn, Cruz, Romeo and Harper cheered her on from the front row. All eyes were on three-year-old Harper who looked adorable in a black dress as she sat with her father and editor Anna Wintour.

Meanwhile rapper Kanye, 37, arrived in an all-black ensemble, adding a white tailored blazer for a stylish monochrome ensemble. The rapper recently unveiled his new collection for sportswear giant Adidas, and was also spotted with wife Kim Kardashian and their one-year-old daughter North on the front rows of shows such as Alexander Wang in New York.

The style icons were not the only big names of fashion to make an appearance at the memorial service. Milliner Stephen Jones and HFM editor-at-large Hilary Alexander also made an appearance to pay their respects to the professor of fashion design.

It seemed particularly poignant to host Professor Louise Wilson's memorial on the first day of London Fashion Week. Considered one of the most prestigious experts in her field, the professor has worked at schools including Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London, where she has often been credited behind the success of major designers including British creators Alexander McQueen, Jonathan Saunders and Christopher Kane.

All three designers have since gone on to enjoy international acclaim with their fashion houses, and each season sees the fashion pack clambering to get a coveted ticket to their shows.
