It has been 40 years since Diane Von Furstenberg premiered her wrap dress and with it made a now-iconic statement about femininity and functionalty. Her influence on fashion has not wayned since and those who continue to look to her for cues will get a new collection's worth on February 10, 4 PM. Diane Von Furstenberg is the mother of three (royal) children from her marriage with a German prince, Egon of Furstenberg.
The 64 year-old Jewish American designer is sometimes credited with cementing the classic New York look. Donna Karan launched her label in the early 70s, had a daughter in 1978, and has been giving moms easy ways to look chic in bold or all-black sepeartes ever since. Her show will take place on February 11 at 2 PM.
Moms everywhere will be looking forward to the new collection from JCrew for its uniform of basics that make dressing well so easy, affordable, and fun. Jenna Lyons, who earned celebrity as its visionary creative director, is a mom known for painting her son's nails in a fashion typically boundary-pushing for an iconic business woman. JCrew's new collection is on view February 12th.
