Prom is a teen's time to shine!

on Jan 7, 2008

Victorya is one of those designers who believes in framing the woman. A lot of the legendary female designers through history, from Claire McCardell and Chanel through Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg, are women who really started their whole process by dealing with and understanding their own bodies: how to get dressed, how they wanted to present themselves, and I think Victorya is very much in that vein. Her designs are user-friendly, and they're woman-friendly.

In this instance, she knew she was dealing with a 17-year-old girl, who, my God, your skin is never going to be seventeen again! Show off beautiful skin, let it be a frame for the woman, in this case, a girl, and Victorya's very aware of that. She's not about imposing something on people. And I think there are a lot of designers who've become very successful approaching things that way.
