DVF’s Journey of a Dress

6a00d83451c83e69e200e5517984068833-800wiOver the weekend I visited the Diane Von Furstenberg Journey of a Dress exhibit. I’ve long been a DVF fan (I even wore a wrap dress in our engagement photos) and to see forty years of wrap dress history all together was quite fascinating. Seeing 200 mannequins wearing the iconic dress was really quite a site to behold; that a printed dress from four decades ago is just as relevant and wearable today as it was then is a true testament to DVF’s vision. There’s just something about the shape and drape of the dress that has helped it to stand the test of time; and its myriad celebrity fans certainly don’t hurt.  The exhibit celebrated not just the legendary dress but also Diane’s life and work. The (hot pink) hallway which serves as the entrance to the exhibit is covered with DVF advertisements and magazine features, and a gallery to the right features a selection of paintings done by Andy Warhol, who was a personal friend. The exhibit is worth visiting even if you don’t consider yourself to be a fashion fan; you’ll learn the history of the brand and see for yourself a glimpse into the life of a very glamorous, hardworking princess turned entrepreneur.

    One benefit of qualifying for the secured loan is that you are certain to get a reduced interest rate because of your collateral and
    the lower chance of default in this situation norah jones concert it was an unpleasant period but effort and perseverance saw me through it,
    and also the lessons learned i hope i won’t
    ever forget.

    Superb site you have here but I was wanting to know
    if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here?

    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable people
    that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions,

    what a great story, Joe and Kristine gave Ken a fabulous gift, a smile that his loved ones will in no way forget about, and you can find just one thing about seeing a guy undertaking smokey burnouts inside a friends’ car that can make us all smile.
