DVF spring 2010: Great but no standing ovation.

DVF by Diane Von Furstenberg.
Much anticipated show, Diane became an empire.
Fashion Designer Diane von Furstenberg was born in Brussels, Belgium. She studied Economics at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, where she met Austro-Italian Prince Egon von Furstenberg.Diane Von Furstenberg wanted to become a career woman and ...she made it. She has ever since created a brand largely respected. Splitting her time between homes in Connecticut, New York, Paris, and the Bahamas, von Furstenberg is always on the go, gathering inspiration for ventures as eclectic as she is. She is best known for her hallmark: " The knit jersey wrap dress. "

On Sunday September 13th, the tent at Bryant Park was completely full attracting a front row as powerful as she is: André Leon Talley, Tina Brown, Fran Lebowitz, Graydon Carter, Terry Richardson and Carine Roitfeld. Everyone was anticipating to see the DVF's spring/summer 2010. Best known for her animal printed jersey dresses, Diane presented a collection with several animal printed dress offset by many solid dresses and separates as well as swimsuits accessorized colorfully. Making wearable and functional garments, Diane has succeeded one again in making functional and very pretty dresses. Colors were once again vibrant, wild, lots of glitz as well as layers. Silhouettes are feminine and hourglass with focus mainly on the waistline. However, I came to wonder if the name did not become bigger then the product... For some reason, I expected a little more from her and left the tent still hungry. Have we become greedy of too much? After all, she's human...LOL
