If you didn’t get your fill during N.Y.C. fashion week, mark your calendar for Sunday night to watch Martha Stewart’s first primetime special, Martha Stewart Presents: The Women Who Dress America, featuring N.Y.C.’s leading ladies of design: Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tory Burch and Jenna Lyons of J.Crew. And you might surprised at what the domestic doyenne finds out from these iconic women! Donna Karan, for instance, who is now known for her masterful draping of jersey, admits “Yes. I failed draping [in design school]. So I think that’s probably my obsession. What we don’t do well in, you say, ‘I’m going to get that one!'” Diane von Furstenberg reflects on the enduring appeal of her signature wrap dress: “When you start things in life, you start a little bit as an amateur no matter what. And you just go forward, and then all of a sudden you become a professional. Almost 40 years later, and the one dress that I created is still valid today.” But even more exciting for Diane than just loving what she does, is having a company of strong women. “You’ll see in my office. I have all these young girls and it’s like a beehive…And you know what I always say, which is not only true, I say that most of the men in my company drive or clean.” Tune in on Sunday night at 9 PM EST on the Hallmark Channel for more.
