http://www.FTV.com/videos NEW YORK - FashionTV brings you the behind the scenes action at Diane von Furstenberg. Experienced Fashion Week hairstylist Orlando Pita is animated as he shows his team the updo that Diane von Furstenberg wants for her Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show at New York Fashion Week. It's a retro tucked updo from the 50s and 60s. He explains the updo as model Caroline Brasch Nielsen poses for the camera. "It's all about a new beginnings and fresh starts, so we don't want to finish it too much," he explains. Model Joan Smalls tells FashionTV that they just did a rehearsal for the show. What does she say about the collection? "It's very spring. The colors are very nice." Model Juju Ivanyuk tells us what she thinks of DVF. "She's an amazing woman. She's very nice and sweet." After New York, Juju is doing shows in Milan and Paris. "She's very energetic," agrees model Jacquelyn Jablonski. Model Leslie from Click is doing her first ever runway show with Diane von Furstenberg. "It's a mixture of emotions," she says.
The lady of the hour talks about the inspiration behind the collection for this season. "At first, when we were designing the fabrics, the inspiration came from Africa," she says, "Modern Africa, the Africa of today, and also Africa is the center of the world so the Africa of today is so strong...It's about hope," she says, "So it's either utilitarian work clothes or very overdone and very festive."
Also, the show takes place on 9/11 and DVF understands that so she thought to call the show Beginning because it's about hope, light, and optimism.
