Fashion Week is here, and we're bringing you another favorite American designer. We're sure you already have her on your radar, but Diane von Furstenberg's iconic fashion industry status deserves some real attention. Here's to the incomparable Diane with a look back at her bright prints, feminine cuts, and signature wrap dresses.
For more than 40 years, Diane von Furstenberg has designed beautiful, covetable dresses and ready-to-wear pieces for a strong, stylish, independent woman. Among her other chic milestones? Giving us a plethora of signature wrap-dress prints, being honored with the CFDA lifetime achievement award, moonlighting as a judge on America's Next Top Model, and committing millions of dollars to New York City's High Line public park. That said, each season DVF delivers a runway collection that celebrates bold femininity via print, color, and ultrawearable silhouettes. There's a sense of playfulness, with a sophisticated finish, that evolves with the ebb and flow of trends. Click through for our runway retrospective — and get excited for what's to come for Fall 2013.
