At a time when so much in the fashion industry feels uncertain, Diane von Furstenberg’s fashion week after-party remains a constant. Indochine will always cater. An eclectic crowd of artists (Francesco Clemente and Anh Duong), power players (hubby Barry Diller, former French first lady Cécilia Attias), and fashion folk (Margherita Missoni, Coco Brandolini, Amanda Brooks) will always be in attendance. And the designer’s many grandchildren will always have the run of the place.
Sunday night’s affair at von Furstenberg’s Meatpacking District studio was no different.

The way von Furstenberg tells it, her show days always tend to have a “Groundhog Day” quality to them. “I have a gold coin that’s good luck that my father gave me, so I put that in my shoe. And I do yoga and I do all these things, and then it’s the show and then it’s like a let down and then there’s the party for the employees and then there’s this party. It’s just family, I guess,” she said.
Which, based on von Furstenberg’s guests’ enjoyment, seems to be just fine.
