Marc Jacobs, SS16.

Marc Jacobs spectacularly closed New York Fashion Week last night with an incredibly patriotic collection for Spring/Summer 2016. For the first time, the show venue moved from the Park Avenue Armoury to the historic Ziegfeld Theatre.

In fact, it wasn't just the location, the whole presentation was cinematic. Each attendee was given popcorn and a Playbill, plus an old school drinks fountain provided the refreshments. Models walked out of the stage door, down a red carpet past hundreds of adorning fans and into the main theatre where the audience were sat. There was also a live band playing, inclusive of trumpet player Brian Newman.

Speaking of models, the cast of this show was pretty spectacular. The New York Fashion Week regulars Joan Smalls, Kendall Jenner, Anna Ewers and Bella Hadid were joined by Irina ShaykEmily Ratajkowski and Victoria's Secret angel Adriana Lima. Even my favourite, Caroline Trentini, made an appearance. To top it off, long-time muse to Jacobs Beth Ditto also hit the runway, much to the crowd's delight.

The collection itself had a strong American theme throughout. Varsity jackets, majorette uniforms, sailor-inspired pieces and of course some Old-Hollywood glamour hit the runway - all in red, white and blue, naturally. If anyone has seen the 90s cult-classic, Drop Dead Gorgeous, (ft. Kirstie Alley, Ellen BarkinKirsten Dunst and Denise Richards) that's what the collection really reminded me of!

Celebrities littered the front row from a variety of generations: Bette Midler, Sofia CoppolaKata Mara, Wynona Ryder and Dianna Agron, were just a few of the celebrities in attendance. Unfortunately, Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign star, Cher was a no-show.

With NYFW now at a close, and everyone headed for London, take a look back at some of my favourite collections from the week from Rodarte, Victoria Beckham and Givenchy.
