Erdem Moralioglu was inspired by ''girls who are boys'' for his Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

A monochrome colour palette dominated the Canadian womenswear designer's collection at London Fashion Week on Monday (16.09.13), which saw androgynous silhouettes mixed with feminine textures such as lace shirts, chiffon sweaters and organza skirts.

Speaking to Vogue.co.uk, he described his show as an ''absence of colour'', before revealing he was inspired by ''girls who are boys''.

Touching upon his favourite item in the collection, the 36-year-old designer explained: ''It would be my sweatshirt look, number 7, with the shirt-tails and embroidered organza skirt, worn by Alana. I liked the boy-girl, black-whiteness.''

Erdem - whose designs are sold globally in over 50 department stores including Liberty's in London - admitted he was ''nervous'' about his Spring/Summer collection but gets equally excited about designing for the winter months.

He continued: [I was] excited, nervous, relieved and hopefully ultimately happy [before the show in London].

''I enjoy both [Spring and Winter collections] equally. They differ in practical terms but are ultimately a continuation of the same story and made for the Erdem woman.''

Meanwhile the critically acclaimed designer claims it took a series of all-nighters to pull off the stunning designs in time.

He said: ''No, I was up all night finishing the collection. The longer dresses towards the end of the show took the longest.''
