A few pictures from the weekend presentation of Diane von Furstenberg's Fall 2006 collection. Above, the designer and Vogue editors André Leon Talley and Anna Wintour, sans sunglasses. (By the way, did you know that Rod 2.0 and Condé Nast are in love?) The designer famous for the wrap dress called this collection her tribute to Working Gals and the 1940s influence is unmistakable—heavy on the checks, tartans and bold houndstooth. DVF also is giving us a significantly looser silhouette and more designs in silk. Very forties fabulous—any moment you expected Rosalind Russell or Myrna Loy to walk the runway.
They didn't, but, DVF fave and supermodel Alex Wek was one of the star attractions. This is among the reasons why we love the designer so much. One more reason: Her atelier is just steps away on 12th Street.
PS. The Diane von Furstenberg diary of the show is here. Also, full collections from all the designers can be found at the Olympus Fashion Week site. Even better: Watch live streaming video of all the shows at IMG Fashion World.
