Diane von Furstenberg celebrates 40 years of the wrap dress

Diane von Furstenberg said happy 40th birthday to the wrap dress this weekend

Diane von Furstenberg was inside the party spirit this weekend, as she celebrated a whopping 40 years of her signature wrap dress at her Autumn Winter 2014 Big apple Fashion Show.

Karen Elson, a very long time von Furstenberg model, opened the star-studded show, which also saw Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn take to the catwalk to showcase the fad designer’s Autumn Winter 2014 range.

Of course, there have been a number of wrap dresses on display, as there always is – however it wasn’t until the finale that the garment, which has become a wardrobe staple for millions of ladies worldwide, got its full birthday bumps. As confetti reigned down at the catwalk, the models stepped out in lots of gold wraps – a fitting tribute to the dress that has made von Furstenberg a household name.

The enduring style, first made favored within the 1970s, is a favorite for plenty of women as a result of its easy, flattering shape. It is promptly glamorous and everyday – that is one of the most reasons it continues to hang its place in wardrobes everywhere.

Although the wrap dress hasn’t ever truly gone away, it’s enjoying a resurgence in the mean time way to the Oscar-nominated movie American Hustle, and the vintage Diane von Furstenberg dresses worn by Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams.

We’re definitely digging out ours…
