London-based designer Osman Yousefzada had a very special guest at his London Fashion Week show – the prime minister's wife Sarah Brown was seated in the front row at Somerset House.

Sarah, patron of The British Fashion Council, watched as the British couturier unveiled a collection featuring Grecian influences.

There were high collars, textural contrasts, and even floor-skimming maxi dresses, while one standout evening dress featured jewelled segments on the pockets.

Mrs Brown, who chose a navy blue ensemble made up of a blouse by Wallis, jacket by M&S Autograph and trousers by Brit Lintner, was firmly focused on the designs.

A day later however, her attention had turned to a different matter – that of her husband.

The mum-of-two spoke up in Gordon Brown's defence after stories appeared in the press claiming his staff had phoned anti-bullying helplines.

"Gordon's the man that I know and the man that I love," said Sarah, during an interview with GMTV.

"People have heard me talk about him and they probably know everything that I would have to say about him."

"I know him as a strong, hard-working, decent man and he isn't anything else. What you see is what you get with him."
