Models walked down a spiral staircase before taking to the runway for the Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Spring 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The setting was perfect for this ethereal collection.

Ms Ferretti was inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’, so we saw 20s inspired looks ranging from drop-waist dresses, loose pant suits, beaded calf-length dresses, chiffon wrap dresses with handkerchief hemlines and oversized blazers.

Floral prints dominated the collection with a neutral colour palette of nude, ice blue, grey, orange, ivory and pink.

Philosophy is the kid sister to Alberta Ferretti, but it appears she’s done a lot of growing up since last season.

I hope we get to see a lot of this collection on the red carpet and that it will be embraced by more than just young Hollywood.

Model sported a side-parting with frizzy ends whilst they walked the runway wearing bi-colour Mary Janes.
