The Fashion Week event opens each year in the four fashion capitals of the world: Paris , London , Milan and New York.

The greatest fashion designers take turns in surprising their audiences with over the top creations.

This year’s New York edition marked the return of Helmut Lang and Zac Posen on the fashion scene, as well as Avril Lavigne’s presentation of her prêt-à-porter line of clothing, Abbey Dawn.

The 2012 spring collections of Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein were presented at the fashion event, alongside those of Proenza Schouler, Anna Sui, J. Mendel, Herve Leger by Max Azria, Ohne Titel, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, Diane von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, Jill Stuart, Prabal Gurung and Lacoste.

Ralph Lauren took inspiration in the 1920s for his collection. Pastel, ivory and metallic hues, floral prints, satin and feathered accessories helped recreate the delicate, romantic atmosphere of the Gatsby era.
