Fashion Week: Diane von Furstenberg
BY SAMANTHA CRITCHELL/AP FASHION WRITER
NEW YORK — Diane von Furstenberg’s pring collection, dubbed “Beginnings,” seemed more about renewal.
The looks on her runway at New York Fashion Week on Sunday were fresh and breezy, but not overly frilly or frivolous. They certainly didn’t come from an inexperienced designer.
“The light appears and changes everything,” was the headline on the notes left on the chairs of editors, stylists, retailers and von Furstenberg’s famous friends, including Oscar de la Renta and Valentino, who attended the show at the Lincoln Center tents.
She took her theme seriously, but not literally, turning out modern clothes rooted in a different era when women enjoyed looking like ladies.
Von Furstenberg was faced with a challenge from the start. As president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, she helps set the international calendar of style previews. New York’s spring shows are always the second week of September, therefore always crossing Sept. 11.
