Throwback Thursday Tribute

Fashion forward…style creator…designer…philanthropist…and icon! Diane von Furstenberg is a name that is still very prominent in today’s fashion industry and will NOT go anywhere. The lovely DVF was a game changer and this tribute is for her!

Diane entered the fashion industry in the 1960’s, but she became widely known for creating what every woman has as a staple in her closet even today. This is the introduction to the iconic wrap dress that entered our worlds in 1974.

Although the wrap dress was introduced in 1974, by 1976 this brilliant designer sold over one million of this dress! It was re-launched in 1997 and still to this date continues to be a girls go to fashion item. Then when launching her perfume, Diane gathered ladies in her iconic wrap dress to initiate a flash mob! EPIC!

Diane von Furstenberg continued innovation within the fashion industry as she is also known for her beautiful prints.

In 2011 DVF brought her love for patterns, prints, colors and textures to home. She launched DVF Home and it is equally amazing.

Her fashions are so divine and iconic that she was chosen for partnership with London hotel The Claridge’s for re-design of several rooms and suites. Although this was stated to be the first time DVF did a project like this one on such a large scale, she maintained her classic glamour and style with signature prints and bold colors. Besides, it’s also stated she is a long time guest and friend of this five star hotel! Check out more HERE.

In 2005 she was awarded The Lifetime Achievement Award by Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). She was then named the president in 2006.

2014 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the wrap dress…

Journey of the Dress

Diane has consistently delivered gorgeous prints, bold colors and examples of bold femininity throughout every collection. This is the only designer I know that combines glamour and wear-ability at its best! What I admire the most about this icon is that in her words “I am against anything that objectifies women.” She stands firm on female empowerment and has no issue in voicing her opinion whenever she sees fit.

Thanks for continuously inspiring me!
