(NEW YORK) At the time when many designers are scaling back, CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg is leading the charge by using a large-scale runway show to feature her Resort 2010 collection. Alex de Betak flew in from Paris to produce her show, and David Lipman was sitting front row to consider looks for the upcoming ad campaign. Even Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey made it to the show and tweeted live from the DvF studio. “It’s just about color and optimism, which is what we need right now,” the designer said. And Rio, too, as the ultimate Brazilian goddess was the ultimate inspiration behind the collection and all the fantastical pink confetti dresses, eye-popping swimsuits, and ruffled skirts that she could stuff into that luggage. The designer has perfectly winnowed her brand identity with consistently strong collections, elated models, and satisfied buyers. “I feel like an old turtle,” she laughed after the show. “But I love life, women, and people. We have very limited time in life, so we better just enjoy it!”
