If it weren’t so popular, Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dress could be enshrined as a feminist artifact. The designer said the dress empowers women; it empowered her, paying all her bills and allowing her to be free. The dress is also a symbol of sexual freedom for many women, since it has no zippers and is easy to remove.
Von Furstenberg spoke about feminism on the eve of the four-day event she’s hosting in celebration of International Women’s Day, DVF x IWD, which begins on Wednesday. She pointed to Frances McDormand at the recent Academy Awards ceremony, where upon winning an Oscar for her lead role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the actress asked all the female nominees in the audience to stand. “Look around, everybody, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed,” the actress said.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion
