Reversible Wrap Dress

DVF on Vogue, 1976

Shelley appeared in a spread for Vogue about Diane von Fürstenberg in July of 1976. DVF was and is famous for introducing the wrap dress in 1974. It's a one-piece dress that is worn by wrapping one side of the dress over the other (giving the wearer a V-neckline) and securing it with an attached sash/belt. It usually came in a printed jersey fabric. The magazine ran an article about DVF and featured her latest designs - cowl-necked jumpsuits and dresses (in solid colors) and updated versions of her wrap dress (including a jumpsuit version.) Shelley wore DVF's reversible wrap dress, a printed jersey dress that can be worn with the "V-neckline" on the back.
