The building, that's close to 250 years old, is more often frequented by hoody-clad students but on Thursday models delivered a much more fashionable lecture.
And this was no ordinary catwalk - the former church was transformed into a rich autumnal scene, lined with trees and fallen leaves.
Fake fur was high on the agenda of show, curated by Victoria Square's personal stylist Rebecca McKinney.
From the statement long-hair aubergine shrug or chic leopard print fur collar, to the stunning Cossack hat and muff that would have made Anna Karenina green with envy, it is definitely safe to dig out last year's fur or invest in a key piece for this winter.
So while Keira Knightley is inspiring us to embrace our inner Russian heroine, hints from the yet-to-be released Great Gatsby continue to make an impact on the catwalk, with close-fitting dresses accessorised with long strings of pearls, just as Daisy would have worn.
Winter coats ranged in shape from classic mac to cocoon to glamorous cape, but all kept within muted beige and grey tones, allowing statement boots or scarves to take centre stage.
The heritage trend is ticking every box for me this winter, and my favourite outfit had just a hint of Ali McGraw in Love Story, as long hair parted slightly off-centre was paired with an A-line tweed skirt and chunky Aran cardigan and simple ankle boots.
For both sexes tailoring was key - whether high street or designer. Rebecca emphasised the clean fit of neat pencil skirts and narrow trousers for women, while for men slim-fitting blazers continue to be a wardrobe staple.
But enough about male fashion and back to the important things - footwear. Ladies it's all about the boot. Whether they're cropped and snake print, knee high or lace-ups, I was lusting after so many of the chic styles on display for my winter wardrobe.
Oh and a hat - whether cloche or Cossack - will never go amiss.
