Iconic Dress for Every Woman:
With New York Fashion Week coming to a close and the fashion industry shifting its focus to the London Fashion Week, we thought we would peek back at the woman who invented a chic, timeless, versatile, and flattering dress that is a staple in my closet and should be for every woman. In 1974, Diane von Furstenberg, created the iconic wrap dress. Within two years, she had sold 5 million of them! Today, she continues to wow women with her iconic designs as was evident in this runway gallery of her Spring/Summer 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week. She is also the president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and through the organization continues her fight to ensure healthier standards in the fashion industry.
Take a look at this impressive list of 25 women designers (including Diane) who have influenced fashion in a profound way compiled by the fashion news site, Fashionista.
