Runway Report: DVF Fall 2016

In lieu of the traditional runway, Diane von Furstenberg threw a model-clad dance party, where the vibe was just as groovy as the clothes. As a strong nod to the seventies, the collection brought audiences through a true von Furstenberg time warp, complete with bold patterns, poppy purples, burnt oranges, and silhouettes that Annie Hall would even be jealous of.

If the background jams of Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman” weren’t clear enough, the clothes confirm it: DVF’s Fall 2016 collection is an ode to femininity and individuality. Individuality is seen in the hair and makeup of each model, as their natural styles dominate with a slight seventies flair, while femininity is reverent everywhere from Karlie Kloss’s gold sequin wrap-dress and Jordan Dunn’s sultry printed gown. The clothing stays true to the figure of each woman by outlining every curve, culminating into a beautiful narrative of identity, girlhood, and most importantly, confidence.
