Plus Size Trend Of The Week: Plus Size Faux Wrap Dress
In 1974, Diane von Furstenberg made fashion history when she re-introduced the wrap dress and made it popular. This weekend the fashion designer and American Express will kick off a year long celebration to commemorate the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress. We asked our Creative Director, Valery Amador to share her fondest wrap dress memory and here is what she had to say:
I remember my first wrap-around dress… the year was 1977, and Saturday Night Fever was all the rage. It was my first semi-formal dance in high school, and my first ‘real’ grownup dress and heels… I wore a light lilac, wrap-around dress in Qiana fabric with lightly sparkled stockings and Candies shoes; I felt like the disco-queen-bell-of-the-ball that night. And my date…. he wore a tan leisure suit, no tie… stylish for the time.
To celebrate the popularity of the wrap and faux wrap dress, it’s our plus size trend of the week.
