Ralph Lauren is the latest brand to adopt the see now, buy now concept.

On Wednesday, Ralph Lauren will present a see now, buy now collection for fall, which will be available immediately at its boutiques, online and at wholesalers, according to Vogue.

"Showing clothes, then delivering them six months later. it's over. With the Internet, social media... you have to change," Lauren told Vogue.

"I've always looked at the business as an evolution. We're never standing still, and we're never chasing anyone. Everything is a new chapter," Lauren continued.

In addition to Ralph Lauren's consumer-facing runway show, which will take place outside the brand's Madison Avenue flagship store, the label will also have a traditional show for industry types.

Lauren isn't alone in adopting the see now, buy now concept. Tom Ford, Burberry's Christopher Bailey and Tommy Hilfiger are among some of the bigger names experimenting with the idea.

The 35 men's and women's looks that were unveiled are part of what Club Monaco has dubbed "The New York Fashion Week Fall Collection."
