"Life is a party" declared Diane von Furstenberg in the program notes for her Fall/Winter collection. Although when it comes to a von Furstenberg show, it always feels like a party. Itís not just the atmosphere at her Lincoln Center runway that resembles a star-studded celebration. Her cacophonously layered chic prints were exuberant with flowed in bursts of silk and chiffon. There was a jungle of leopard prints, snake skins, and pony hair A fun-loving, devil-may-care mix of colors such as pink and orange was a risk that bode well for her. To a soundtrack suited for Studio 54, she offered an appropriate wardrobe of maxi dresses, opulent aubergine, ruby reds, and excessive rabbit fur jackets. It embodied a dream of the 1970s. None of this is new to von Furstenbergís cannon of fashion, but why mess with success?
