As we keep an eye on style on the New York runway one that has caught our attention again is the glamorous Diane Von Furstenberg as she celebrates the 40th anniversary of the wrap dress.

This designer is Iconic and I could not help but talk about this latest collection; her show stopping collection did not seize to amaze me. The runway show was in celebration of 40 years of her phenomenal wrap dress design, which has been an inspiration to many designers in the fashion industry.

The Belgian-born designer made a name via her V-necked, feminine and easy to wear figure flattering pieces that sold five million copies within two years when she was 29, this got her the accolade in 1976 by Newsweek Magazine as; “the most remarkable woman since Coco Chanel”.

The unveiling of her fall/winter 2014 collection called the “Bohemian Wrapsody” at the New York fashion week, starred the golden dress with lots of glam, glam glam. This was the highlight of the show for me. The showed actually opened with large geometric black and gold prints, sometimes worn with trousers reinvented as an evening dress in star-studded black silk chiffon. The finale of the show presented a printed flower motif version with 15 final models that sashayed out beautifully golden wrap dresses as Music Met Runway with New York singer St Vincent. Then with a burst of golden confetti showering down from above, with her models — all dressed in shiny gold — dancing and cheering behind her.

I for one am a big fan of wrap dresses that tend to accentuate my petite body type and Diane Von Furstenberg is sure a magical designer. What is your Wrap story?
