Pretty, wearable and elegant, Diane Dickinson’s dresses were made for busy women who favoured flattering style and fine quality. The American designer began her fashion career at Sak’s 5th Avenue in Oklahoma before venturing to start her own line of dresses. Her motive: dress women based on her real world knowledge of what working women of many ages want. Ease and elegance.
