DIANE VON FURSTENBERG FALL/WINTER 2013

EVERY GIRL’S A PARTY GIRL

Really, what can you say about a Diane von Furstenberg collection?  She is more than a fashion icon, she is, truly, one of the greatest designers.  She knows her customer, and pretty much all women, better than anyone else.

Why?  Well, let’s start with that wrap dress. Why not? She did.  It was the simplest of ideas that turned out to be just about the best thing a designer has ever done for women.  And we are all grateful that she didn’t rest on her laurels.

Each and every season, von Furstenberg has come on stronger, the creator of must-have pieces.  You can’t help but be drawn to the color and the easy style of her looks.  She made it simple to be stylish and comfortable.

This season, the designer took a long look back at her fashions and her life, and came up with the most exuberant collection of them all.  It started with subtle animal prints (who would have thought that was possible?), and added texture with leathers and suede’s (a brown suede wrap dress pretty much said it all).

She says life is a party, and it is always a privilege to be a part of hers.
