The Tory Burch Spring 2012 runway show was a first for the designer who usually showcases her collection in a presentation format.

Her pieces had ladylike charm with New York attitude.

Taking her inspiration from The Great Gatsby era the designer presented cool stripes and on-trend polka-dots for day wear.

Tory’s second first was adding evening/red carpet looks to her collection.

As someone who attends many glamorous parties, she would’ve had no trouble being inspired to create the stunning sequined cocktail dress and billowing silk chiffon gowns which took the runway.

That coral gown is totally divine.

Tabitha Simmons provided the footwear whilst Diane Kendal for MAC gave the models a flawless natural look.

Key accessories included colourful rimmed sunglasses and beaded necklaces.
