Wrap Stars
Twenty years ago, Diane Von Furstenberg created the wrap dress and captured the spirit of women's liberation. With its plunging neckline, knee-grazing skirt, and sashed waist, it celebrated in-your-face femininity and sexual freedom. Now, Von Furstenberg, 50, and her daughter- in-law, Alexandra, 25, have brought the much-missed wrap back with the September '97 launch of their new clothing line, Diane by Diane Von Furstenberg. Thousands of the easy-care, easy-wear dresses have been flying off the racks, proving that it's once again a wardrobe essential for the strong and successful woman on the go. In addition to more than 70 new patterns, and colors, the Diane line also introduced several sexy pieces, including a cap-sleeve wrap and a halter wrap dress.
