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…
