Happy 40th birthday to the wrap dress! 

In 1974, designer Diane Von Furstenberg created the first ever wrap dress.

Only 2 years later in 1976, over a million dresses of this flattering frock had been sold and its popularity has never stopped growing! Now every fashion brand showcases the classic in its ranges, whatever the season may be.

Classically made with ties that knot on each side, this creation has had every design element thrown at it.

From the introduction of deep-v necklines, embellishment and gathered waistlines, the wrap dress is constantly being reinvented!
