So I can across this little Q&A with Diane Von Fürstenberg, and I thought I’d share it with you guys.

Q: What was your inspiration for the wrap dress?

A: I was really very young, in my early twenties. I worked in and Italian factory and I loved printed jersey. It started as a little wrap top like a ballerina would wear, and then one day I just had this idea to make it into a dress.

It is the most traditional dress, like a kimono, but it was revolutionary because it was made out of jersey and it was tight to the body.

Q: What is your secret to staying young?

A: I love life and I live it fully.

Q: What is your favourite item of clothing?

A: Whatever I am wearing at the moment. There is that moment in the morning when you put on the right thing and it somehow feels like the right thing.

Q: The secret to style?

A: you have to figure out where you are going and what yo have to do and then just go for it.

This year the wrap dress turned 40 years old, and it’s still a go to piece for most women. It’s classic, comfortable and very feminine.
