dvf and the woman i want to be
February 19th, 2015
Created in 1974 by Diane Von Furstenberg, the wrap dress is flattering, versatile, and easy to wear. But did you know that in the beginning, the wrap dress wasn´t a dress at all?. It started as a wrap top and skirt but then the designer thought that it could make a simple and sexy dress. Personally, i love how practical and feminine it is and without any doubt i think every woman should have at least one wrap dress in her closet.
Last year, Diane Von furstenberg not only celebrated 40 years of her iconic design but also launched a new book called “The woman i wanted to be”, which i started reading a few days ago. the book is a reflection on her professional and personal life , it is a very private look at a very public woman i would say. I think her life symbolize independence and power for an entire generation of women. With remarkable honesty and wisdom, von Furstenberg mines the rich territory of what it means to be a woman. She opens up about her family and career, overcoming cancer, building a global brand, and devoting herself to empowering other women, writing, “I want every woman to know that she can be the woman she wants to be”.
This week, the designer showed her Fall Winter 2015 collection in New York and this time she brought seduction to the runway, her signature dress has lace peeping out from hems, frilled skirts and waists enlaced with lengths of fastened leather. Once again, she got me and i cant wait to put my hands on one of those beauties, as you should too.
