“I never knew what I wanted to do, but I knew what kind of woman I wanted to be” -DVF

In 1974, Diane Von Furstenberg’s role in the women’s liberation movement came in the form of a wrap dress. Now iconic, the garment became a symbol of fashionable, liberated women because it invited women to embrace and own their female bodies. Hanging out with the likes of Gloria Steinem, DVF quickly came to represent the powerful feminist side of fashion design.
