While many designers played it safe and sober for Fall 2009, fashion rock star Diane von Furstenberg went in a different direction with daring styles.

Surely this collection was a backlash against the somber economic times. Her collection certainly had an air of whimsy with its pom-pom hats and mash up of playful patterns.

Implications - The recession may have had us feeling glum and somber, but in Fall 2009, some designers used whimsical cues to inspire nostalgia and evoke the happiness of a more innocent era. Vibrant patterns, childlike accents and fun colors turned the process of getting dressed into a cathartic experience that inspired us to remain optimistic despite the sour economy.
