Today’s fashion consumer welcomes global design references, says Diane von Furstenberg. The fashion designer talks at New York Fashion Week to the FT’s Vanessa Friedman about the inspiration of palaces in her latest dress design, China and fighting piracy

My favourite fashion week moment so far, three days into the start of the New York collections, has to be Diane von Furstenberg pulling Sergey Brin out of his front-row seat and onto her catwalk to take her victory bow with her and her creative director, Yvan Mispelaere at the end of her show. And all three of them were wearing Google glass in different colours! I feel a new accessory category coming on.
