Von Furstenberg let loose a fashion tidal wave with her wrap dress in the 70's - one design suitable for women of all ages and sizes.
On the red carpet DVF said the dress truly put her on the map.
SOUNDBITE: Diane von Furstenberg, designer, saying (English):
"This is the first time that I ever honored the wrap dress, and she did so much for me. She made me famous; she paid for all my bills, so tonight we celebrate the wrap dress."
The Journey of a Dress Exhibition celebrates the 40th anniversary of the wrap, and includes vintage and modern creations from DVF and other designers.
The veteran designer will unveil her latest collection during New York Fashion Week in February.
