DVF Through Glass


Want to see behind the eyes of Fashion Week? Well now you can.

Google has asked designer Diane von Furstenberg, her team and models to wear a new camera they have brought out which is placed beside the eye to record exactly what someone can see. The Result? A fascinating video that even created butterflies in my stomach as one model made her way to open the show on front of 300 people! The work, dedication and glamour is finally visible to OUR eyes.

Beginnings


Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg  gave out mini American flags at the end of her New York fashion show, which took place on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, in memory of the shocking day. The show was named beginning’s, and it certainly gave out that feeling.
