Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear *Fortuna* collection was shown in NYFW,September 13, 2015.
Diane von Furstenberg chose as her muse for her Spring/Summer 2016 collection the Roman goddess Fortuna. She who represents luck, fortune, and fate. That could be a description of Diane von Furstenberg herself. DVF has spent a lifetime creating her own happiness, prosperity, and destiny.
Spring/Summer 2016 collection embraced dreamy dresses and cool draping that leans towards a Studio 54, 1970s moment. Diane von Furstenberg sent more that thirty Looks on the runway .
The colours such hot pinks, marigold yellows, lilacs, and shimmering golds gave the ensembles a steamy hot house sensuality. A notion accentuated by pleated grecian chiffon gowns topped off with strips of python or those covered in gold embroidered butterflies. If some of the mash up of multiple vibrantly-colored small motif silk printed dresses felt a tad too busy for most, they were smartly offset with more muted, but no less alluring, looks. A white tweed pantsuit and gold lace floor-skimming dress come immediately to mind.
DVF’s runway cast boasted of top models including Karlie Kloss, Irina Shayk, Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid and Lily Aldridge.
