    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.
