Diane von Furstenberg: She’s her own muse

At Diane von Furstenberg's Fall 2013 presentation at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, there was the return of those classic DVF prints – leaves, chains, animal and silos as simple as the famous wrap dress that put her on the map. (Feb. 10, 2013) (Credit: Getty Images)

Let’s start with the finish. After a decade of making her finale walk with a creative director by her side, Diane von Furstenberg took to the runway alone. She wasn’t a bit shy, mouthing the words; “I’m everywoman, oh, oh, oh,” to the blasting disco anthem.

It said a lot about the collection called “Glam Rock,” which more than referenced the '70s high life (and we mean high) intertwining a rock ‘n’ roll vibe with references to the age of disco. It was really almost autobiographical -- and reportedly, von Furstenberg wanted to bring the collection back to its original roots.

There was the return of those classic DVF prints -- leaves, chains, animal and silos as simple as the famous wrap dress that put her on the map side-by-side with, say, an ensemble comprised of (get ready) a leopard bark pony hair/raccoon lined jacket, a bronze lame blouse, an a gold/copper leather pant. Bold rich colors were paired unabashedly: fuchsia and red, sapphire and plum.

“She is the rock star and the muse of her own life,” said von Furstenberg in her program notes. Just like the designer, herself.
