Recover some of the old time glamor of the past decades by taking a closer look at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection presented during New York Fashion Week. Boost your mood with an artsy and colorful wardrobe to radiate confidence and style-consciousness.

One of the most highly acclaimed designers of the moment, Diane von Furstenberg was inspired by the anniversary of 9/11. The fabulous collection is entitled 'Beginnings' in order to offer all fashionistas and the fashion pack in general the chance to revitalize their wardrobe with a brand new and enchanting parade of outfits.

As the style godmother reveals, this apparel repertoire “...is about light and what light can do and how light changes everything...I did something I’ve never done before — I started with white.” The Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2012 fashion show is built up with precision and creativity.

We have the first ivory-tinted outfits that inject a light and revitalizing allure into the whole collection. Jersey and shirt-dresses in pastel and more vibrant colors take over the lead offering us a memorable and overwhelming visual experience. Retro prints are details to keep an eye on for next summer. Africa is the main source of inspiration for Diane von Furstenberg. There are no colonial references, instead we have the chance to spot the modern African culture with its versatile and fashion-forward quality. Layering also plays an important role in creating a complex and elegant attire. Violet, light blue and lime green are only some of the most important shades the designer used to make her collection even more inspiring and eye-pampering.

Femininity is a leit-motif in the artistic work of Diane von Furstenberg. This collection makes no exception when it comes to emphasizing curves and lady-like silhouettes. Pencil skirts, overalls, fabulous floral jackets are the it-est style items of the hot season. Retro prints and design patterns give this style parade extra glamor. Bermuda shorts and perfectly tailored blazers were also included in order to give a modern and masculine aspect to creative outfits.
