In 1972 Diane von Furstenberg launched her eponymous fashion brand, which is renowned for its signature prints and credited for inventing the wrap dress. A wrap dress is a dress with a front closure formed by wrapping one side across the other. The Fürstenberg wrap dress is consistently knee-length and has long sleeves.
