In the fashion industry, many styles come and go. But some styles stand the test of time. Do you have a wrap dress in your wardrobe? I sure do. I love my wrap dresses. They’re comfortable and stylish. But did you ever give any thought to who invented these iconic dresses? Diane von Furstenberg is the Belgian-born American fashion designer who introduced us to this piece in the early 1970s. Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dress revolutionised fashion, empowering women at a time when women were breaking free from social constraints. She celebrates her 77th birthday on New Year’s Eve.

Imagine it’s 1974. Women demand agency over their bodies and the freedom to make their own choices. Enter Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dress. Made from stretchy jersey cotton fabric, it was comfortable, stylish and adaptable to any body shape. It exuded a chic, confident air. The wrap dress was a symbol that celebrated freedom and individuality.

The empowering strength of the wrap dress was subtle. The garment could be dressed up or down, workwear or a cocktail dress, while remaining effortlessly elegant. Women could express themselves through this fashion. It proved that women could combine power and glamour, comfort and be captivating all at the same time.
