>> Diane von Furstenberg Loves Her Some Leopard Print
—Last night, Diane von Furstenberg participated in a TimesTalks panel in New York alongside Fern Mallis, Prabal Gurung, and Norma Kamali, where she talked about the significance of her signature wrap dress — "To me, it's a dress that always reflects the beginning of your life. I mean, it's 'Oh, I wore that when I got my first job,' or 'Oh, I got laid.'" — and her obsession with a certain animal print: "Leopard print is completely timeless. It was hot in the thirties, in the forties, in the fifties, in the sixties, in the seventies — all the decades. Why? Because there's nothing more beautiful that the leopard, and the way the print moves on the skin and goes up and down. And when I did my first wrap dress, I did a leopard print. And by the way, I keep on doing it, and people keep on buying it. There's something about how the woman feels feline. It's kind of nice to feel feline." [The Cut]
