Diane Von Furstenberg used New York Fashion Week to give a nod to her own fashion past: Reinventing her signature wrap dress, metallic jackets and skinny jeans the designer took us back to the days of disco at Studio 54. Furstenberg was a regular on the part scene in 1970s and was often seen partying at the iconic studio 54. Furstenberg revealed that her inspiration was all about looking back: "DVF for fall is called 'Glam Rock,' so it is what it is. It's glamorous and rock and roll. It is a little bit inspired by David Bowie when he was young, by me when I was young. It’s not that it's party clothes, but it's for people who see life as a party and who embrace life, whatever they do." Von Furstenberg showcased a bright color palate mixed in with earthy tones, in addition metallic, to tell her fashion story in color. Furstenberg herself wore a dress in a print that was showcased on the runway: "There's lots of great separates, pieces that you can mix and go, and beautiful flirty dresses, pants, metallic pants, great jackets, beautiful blouses, a lot of animal prints and then this print is the chain link, which is the very, very first print I designed many years ago, but we treated it, we moved it and we put it in 3-D," But it wouldn’t be a DVF show without the presence of her flattering wrap dress that has made her a fashion icon.
