Coco Chanel once said: "The most courageous act is still to think for yourself."

Day five of Paris Fashion Week showed that even today the legendary fashion designer's words ring true.

Saturday presented a gold mine of eclectic and individual shows: Each one with a unique stamp of their designer.

London-based Vivienne Westwood led the crowd, celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, but travelling — as she did — via Japan, Russia, Spain and Africa.

Westwood is the only designer on the Paris fashion calendar — or perhaps anywhere — who can cross the globe and several centuries, mixing up Bangkok-style catwomen, Chinese tea prints, tropical cowboys, Velasquez wenches, the Ballets Russes, and still produce a coherent and unified show.

Viktor & Rolf, meanwhile, went back to their signature plays on oversized proportion to produce a glitzy show — as they prepare to celebrate 20 years since they founded the label.

The epitome of femininity, Cacharel, explored spring through the natural colors of mother nature, in a trademark delicate display.

Sunday's shows include Kenzo, Celine and Hermes.
