On Sunday, Diane von Furstenberg celebrated 40 years of her iconic wrap dress on the catwalk with a show stopping collection featuring different variations of the dress

This year, Diane von Furstenberg has been celebrating 40 years of the iconic wrap dress in a variety of ways, including an exhibition in Los Angeles with many of the designs making their way to the catwalk show at New York Fashion Week on Sunday.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, von Furstenberg revealed: "This little dress changed my life. It paid my bills, for my children's education. But it also changed the lives of women in ways I had no idea about."

As well as a display of the Autumn/Winter 14 collection aptly named 'Bohemian Wrapsody', the show held at Spring Studios featured a live performance by St. Vincent.

From the beginning, von Furstenberg had clearly defined her vision to make the wrap dress the star character. Model Karen Elson took to the catwalk first wearing a gold wrap dress, followed by models who displayed an array of different variations, with some worn over trousers, and as a reinvented evening dress.

The finale performance came with a shower of golden confetti, when the designer took to the stage with support from her models all dressed in shiny gold, who danced and celebrated with her.
