I had the absolute pleasure and honor of meeting the one and only, Diane von Furstenberg.
I attended her book signing last week with a few colleagues and it was such a great experience.
For the very few who don’t know who she is, Diane is a fashion designer best known for her iconic wrap dress. Her designs have been around for four decades. She has a unique sense of style, one of kind, really. Her dresses are incomparable each with different prints, patterns, geometric shapes. Every design really stands out from the other. They are all absolutely amazing.
Currently, the DVF located at the Aventura Mall is a pop-up store which opened in October. The store looks very similar to the Journey of a Dress exhibition which launched in L.A. earlier this year.
Check out some of the pictures:
