    New York Fashion Week: Diane von Furstenberg Fall/Winter 2013 Runway Show

    Februar 15th, 2013

    Fashion designer Diane von Fuerstenberg had a breakthrough for introducing the knitted jersey ‘wrap-dress’ in 1973.

    Almost 40 years later, she still lives a successful fashionable jet-set life. For this current collection – Fall/Winter 2013, von Furstenberg turned to a heady mix of glam rock and Studio 54 — a moment in the Seventies when she began to spread her wings sartorially and otherwise. Without a creative director by her side for the first time in over a decade, von Furstenberg was determined to recapture some of her label’s essence that she felt had recently gone astray.

    Latest Fashion News: DVF’s new (Google) Glasses

    September 14th, 2012

    Fashion designer Diane von Fuerstenberg (DVF) teamed up with Sergey Brin, Co-founder of Google to unveil a futuristic collaboration, merging fashion and technology. Now you know in case you wondered what the futuristic-looking glasses that Diane von Furstenberg and her models were wearing on the runway last Sunday, were all about.

    Including a camera inside the tiny cube attached to the frame, DVF used Google’s new Glass technology to create a behind-the-scenes video of her latest Spring 2013 collection. The result was to make a short documentary about the day from a designer’s and models’-eye view perspective.

    Overall, nice PR move! I really think this Google-Glasses-experiment will take us a step closer to finalize the marriage of fashion and technology.

    A wrap dress is a dress that is wrapped mostly in the front, similar to the kimono dress. It can also be wrapped in the back or side. The name ‘wrap’ comes from ‘wraparound’ used in the late 1960s and was officially introduced in 1973 by fashion designer Diane von Fuerstenberg.
