Diane Von Frustenberg The Classic Wrap Dress

Season 9, Episode 9 of 13

Although it is often claimed that Dian von Furstenberg 'invented' the wrap dress in 1972, there were earlier wrap dresses. During the Great Depression, house dresses called "Hooverettes" were popular which employed a wrap design. Wrap dresses by Elza Schiaparelli in the 1930s and by Claire Mc-Car-Dell in the 1940s, whose original 'popover' design became the basis for a variety of wrap-around dresses. Today on Fit 2 Stitch, we master the drape to keep that wrap, all wrapped up.
