New York Fashion Week

Unless you have been living under a rock you will have noticed that for the last week it has been New York Fashion Week.

A whole host of designers debuted their spring/summer 2012 collections, giving us a preview of what we will be sporting come the spring.

I have had a look through the collections, wishing I was in New York to enjoy the shows in person, and chosen my favourite. It was pretty tough, Victoria Beckham has finally stepped away from the one safe shape that she has been falling back on and her show was a triumph and Marc Jacobs closed fashion week with a futuristic look at a 1920s speakeasy. However, for me the most perfect collection was shown by the Mulleavy sisters at Rodarte.

Over the last couple of years the sisters have become two of the most looked to women in fashion, with the stories behind their collection enjoyed almost as much as the clothes themselves. The sisters have stuck with a  natural theme, but this time drawn their inspiration from Van Gogh's Sunflowers. 

Here is my pick of their spring/summer looks. Enjoy!
