A too-short New York Fashion Week ended on Thursday with a Marc Jacobs show that was completely in keeping with a parade of collections bursting with self-affirmation, optimism, femininity and glamour featuring strong silhouettes, electric colours, lots of flowers, sequins, and a retro-futuristic spirit that was often straight out of the '80s.

Here are 10 standout looks from the flurry of runway shows in the Big Apple:
