New York Fashion Week's only a few days away (nine to be precise), and we can't wait to see what our favorite designers have in store. So thankfully, when we asked for a sneak peek of sketches, designers like Charlotte Ronson, Erin Fetherston, and Rebecca Minkoff (seen here) gladly complied.
Since a picture says 1,000 words, we asked the designers to keep it brief when describing the inspiration for their collections. Some were able to stick to just one syllable, while others' references couldn't be contained. Find out whose collection is "nirvana" and which label will take you on a road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway, and see all the looks in the gallery.
