Downton Abbey on the Catwalk

To the tune of Downton Abbey’s opening music, Ralph Lauren launched his new collection this weekend at New York Fashion Week. The collection owes much to the period fashion screened in Downton Abbey, which is fast becoming popular over in the States. It has been a long time since cloche hats and riding crops been so in vogue!
