Ralph Lauren's collection has inspiration from the 20s era where women wore flapper dresses and suits along with neat accessories especially hats. Feathers, satin and silk was also used for the designs along with floral prints and pastels hues. Shimmery metallics and ivory shades were also seen. This is perhaps one of the best Spring 2012 collection, very soft and spring-y.
Ralph Lauren and SAKS started New York Fashion Week off with a miniature runway show (as far as the models and audience members go) displaying 34 looks for the fall and holiday season. Instead of the usual stylist, fashion journalist, or A-list celebrity snagging that coveted front row seat, young girls lined the catwalk - little fashionistas and "buyers" in their own right. Ralph Lauren himself even made a special surprise appearance at the end of the show. Ahh, to be a kid again.
