Wrap Dress - Diane von Furstenberg

 

It's a Wrap - 40th Anniversary

 
Journey of a Dress - Diane von Furstenberg
 
 
The iconic jersey wrap dress embellished by Diane von Furstenberg in 1972/73 by using elastic, synthetic fabrics remains forefront and center in a Forever Chic Style maven's closet.  This simple dress, knee length, in a form fitting jersey is popular and frankly perfection on any body type.  Originally, the wrap dress was designed by designers Else Schiaparelli in the 1930's and Claire McCardell in the 1940's.  However, it is Furstenberg's wrap dress that is top of mind and always available in store and online.  I have had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Furstenberg and she is a delightful and amazing woman. 

 

 
 

Excerpt from : The Woman I Wanted to be by Diane von Furstenberg

 
"I never dreamed that the simple dress I launched in 1974, a dress that was easy, sexy, elegant, and affordable all at the same time, would catapult me into the fashion industry.   Yes, I'd sold millions of dresses by 198.  That dress had been inducted into both the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute and the Smithsonian Institution, though I'm embarrassed to say I didn't even know what the Smithsonian was a the time.   At the age of twenty-nine I'd even made the cover of Newsweek, which identified me as "Dress Designer Diane von Furstenberg".
