DVF Talks Shop At FIAF

-------

At last night’s closing installment of the French Institute Alliance Française “Fashion Talks” series (Donna Karan and Catherine Malandrino preceded), Diane von Furstenberg related a memorable dinner-table remark from Christian Lacroix. “I make costumes,” he told her. “You make clothes.” The queen of the wrap dress more or less agreed with the assertion, lamenting the fact that unlike their wearability-minded female peers, male designers have yet to really embrace certain forgiving fabrics. “Women designers like jersey. Men don’t. But,” she added, smiling, “if they wore it, they would.”
