About this title


In 1972 Diane von Furstenberg arrived in New York with a suitcase full of jersey dresses that she had made at her friend Angelo Ferretti's factory in Italy. Two years later and encouraged by "Vogue" editor in chief Diana Vreeland, the distinctive design of her timeless wrap dress took the fashion world by storm and has evolved into a multitude of much-loved variations today. As visually dynamic as the prints that made von Furstenberg famous, this vibrant and long-awaited volume collects for the first time the rich illustrated history of her career and celebrates the forty-year journey of the iconic wrap dress. Featuring photographs by Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, and Francesco Scavullo, among many others, artwork by close friends such as Andy Warhol and Francesco Clemente, and pictures of wrap dress lovers past and present--from Jerry Hall and Iman to Penelope Cruz and Michele Obama, this is the definitive DVF fashion book. A must-have for all lovers of fashion and the generations of DVF fans.


"What is indisputably true is that there have only been rare instances in the history of fashion that rival the amazing story of the DVF wrap dress. Journey of a Dress is a visual diary of the dress' start and where it is today within the hierarchy of fashion. The book provides the reader with an exhaustive, if not encyclopedic photographic catalog of the wrap dress in its many and seemingly endless incarnations. If you are a boomer who was either in the fashion business, a fashion spectator, or a consumer who wore this item, the book is a trip down memory lane as well as a reminder that fashion was once all about the clothes one wore and clothes that served a purpose other than just for mere attention. For those who are rookie fashionphiles, let DVF's story be a lesson to you: Journey of a Dress is a fun retelling of a true fashion fairy tale." -New York Journal of Books

"Coffee Table Book for the Fashion-Obsessed. From the initial launch of her now-legendary wrap dress until now, the iconic designer's career is detailed in this upcoming book. It's richly illustrated by the photographs of Helmut Newton, Francesco Scavullo, and others, and also includes the artwork of Andy Warhol." -WhoWhatWear

..".sure to intrigue any fashion enthusiast--and dress up any table or shelf. " --The Charlotte Observer
