NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Diane von Furstenberg. Modern Flapper Glams Up Fall.

February 3, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Fall '08







Summary: Diane von Furstenberg’s Fall 2008 collection was an impeccable display of her ingenious draping and construction that has made her such a noteworthy icon in the world of fashion. However, while remaining planted in modern silhouettes and accents, Furstenberg took these classics and dipped them ever so slightly into the flapper era. The runway filled with sleeveless shifts sashaying with gold and silver sequins, pressed gold gowns and long leather gloves. Her infamous wrapping was "buttoned up" into the faux-wrap, and her iconic patterns splashed color onto the runway with twill belted blazers and long trench coats. After seeing Diane von Furstenberg’s collection, I’m already anxious to brave the elements just so I can wear the upcoming attire.
