On Tuesday I attended the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

The show started with a bang as vibrant marigold, emerald and tomato red ballgowns with lace bodices swept the runway.

We saw a selection of classic tailored suits which the designer’s clientele love for their refined elegance.

Day dresses ranged from fitted with floral prints, embroidered with a fringed hem and full skirts which swished down the runway.

I loved the opulent Elizabethan pink gown with blousant sleeves which had a fairytale princess feel to it, as did the daffodil strapless gown.

I was floored by the red carpet ready gowns. I was in my element seeing my favourite model – Karlie Kloss – wearing my favourite colour – electric blue – with a black beaded necklace.

Feathers adorned many pieces. I particularly loved the pink strapless gown worn by Lindsey above.

Key accessories included strappy sandals paired with sock from ‘We Love Colors’, embroidered heels, embellished clutches, crystallized minaudières, leather shoulder bags, wedges and crocodile clutches.

Orlando Pita created a ‘romantic, renaissance’ look for the models by giving them crinkled frizzy voluminous tresses. Inspired by Grace Coddington perhaps.
