Diane Von Furstenberg‘s show at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion is a special one that I look forward to attending every year. The music is always great, the front row attendees are unlike any other show, and there’s nothing like seeing DVF walk down the long runway at the end of each show, recognizing some of her beloved guests like Valentino. As Oscar de la Renta once told me, Diane represents today’s American woman, and I completely agree.
Her spring/summer 2013 collection is titled “Palazzo”, including printed jumpsuits, crepe tunics over pants, caftan-like gowns, belted ensembles, and many, many bold colored (such as peach, red, navy, aqua, yellow and lime green) prints with shimmer and sequins galore. Topping off the show were the Glass by Google goggles, worn on everone from the models to Diane Von Furstenberg to Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Nerdy chic! Whether the glasses are on your in-list, or simply not on it at all, you have to give it to DVF who’s always moving with the times, and in this show, is embracing the evolving world of technology.
