Item description for Diane Von Furstenberg: The Wrap by Andre Leon Talley...
Diane von Furstenberg arrived in the fashion world in 1972 with her simple knit jersey wrap dresses. By 1976, Diane had sold more than 5 million of her signature wrap dresses, which had come to symbolize female power and liberation to an entire generation. Almost 20 years later, with the nostalgia for '70s fashion at its peak, Diane re-emerged on the New York fashion scene with her signature wrap modified for a new generation of chic young women. Now with smaller collars than the original wrap, the new version has been enthusiastically adopted by today's trendsetters and celebrities. This volume looks at the history of the "wrap" phenomenon, from its revolutionary early days to its ever-popular present.
