DVF Journey of a dress

feel like a woman wear a dressThis past weekend, a friend and I hit the town to go see a new exhibit at LACMA called DVF Journey of a Dress. It was a beautiful day and an even better day to look back on years of fashion with one of my favorite designers Diane Von Furstenberg. She not only knows fashion, but she seems to have life down as well, making her a well rounded role model for all women.

Diane Von Furstenberg started off with a simple idea: the wrap dress. It was this one, simple idea that catapulted her into fame, fortune and – of course – fashion. It’s funny to think of one person coming up with that idea. Wrap dresses are a staple, and I can’t imagine a world without them. They are easy to throw in a suitcase, wear on a lunch date, or glam up for an evening look. Some of them are so comfy you could live in them!

While drooling over the hoards of dresses from the 60’s to the present, what surprised me was how many of the dresses were so current. I don’t think there were any in the collection that I wouldn’t be thrilled to wear today.

Along with the display of dresses from years past, there was an entire gallery dedicated to portraits of Diane. Andy Warhol’s iconic portraits hung on one entire wall while all sorts of others surrounded. Many were photographs, some were paintings, an animated piece, and a portrait made entirely out of ash (one of my favorites). With so many artists interested in depicting DVF, it is clear that I am not the only one who is fascinated by her.

This inspirational exhibit was  an awe-inspiring look into the life and empire founded by the fabulous DVF.
