NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORKUNITED STATES (SEPTEMBER 08, 2013) (REUTERS) -  Diane von Furstenberg's spring 2014 runway show was all about the 1990s as supermodel Naomi Campbell hit the runway to close the show.

The audience cheered as the veteran model strutted the runway with her signature walk in a black and gold shift dress.

The show, filled with some of today's top faces, including Liu WenJoan Smalls andJourdan Dunn was all about peace.

"This spring really, I call this spring oasis. Because what I tried to do is create an oasis of peace and harmony and color at a moment where the world is so scary and terrifying. And so that women are able to carry their oasis," said vonFurstenberg.

Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punks "Lose Yourself to Dance" helped usher looks down the all-white runway.

Full skirts, maxi dresses and slim fit pants filled out the sophisticated collection. In addition to von Furstenberg's trademark wrap dresses.

Wide leg pants paired with a safari-like top offered a 70's vibe to the line.

"In this collection we show a lot of black and white. I consider black and white a color. So there is a lot of black and white, you know, with red, with indigo blue. Otherwise we have a lot of landscape prints. You know, it's like sunset prints and a lot of gold," von Furstenberg told Reuters.

Next year the 66-year-old designer will celebrate 40 years in the fashion industry. When asked about the ease of creating after so long, von Furstenberg said it comes with ease.

"It's on going. I'm already working on fall. So it's not like a book that you stop and then it's over," she explained.

Mercedes Benz fashion week in New York will end of September 12.
