Oscar de la Renta created opulent, ladylike garments for his fall/winter 2012 collection.

The designer, who became famous for dressing American first lady Jackie Kennedy, brought a distinct touch of 1960s glamour to the range on show at New York Fashion Week.

Splashes of soft pastels such as icy blue and dusty pink featured heavily throughout, balanced with dark turquoise and neutral tones.

Layers of tulle and chiffon made for exquisite gowns while fine tailoring gave way to smart yet feminine dressing.

The models sported bob hairstyles finished with pretty jewelled headbands.

Jewels inspired most of the pieces in the collection as embellished cardigans, tops in crushed glitter and jewelled accessories demonstrated.

The award-winning designer, who was trained by Balenciaga and worked for Lanvin and Balmain, brings experience and a sound appreciation of the feminine form to this collection.

The rest of the runway was filled with rich, luxurious garments expected from the designer which included a chiffon blouse, cashmere sweaters and silk taffeta skirts.

"I used a lot of colors you would not associate with winter colors but today's woman doesn't dress for seasons," the designer said.
