Making her impression on the fashion industry at a time where the economy was welcoming to new talents, forward thinking creatives and a high demand existed due to the booming ad age and a need for simplicity, Diane Von Furstenburg was not one to be overlooked. Her wild prints and wrap concept dress proved to be no fad nor trend, but a long lasting revolution of how women dress.
Advancing ready-to-wear into a new era of loose silhouettes and vibrant textiles, DVF brought style to life in the seemingly drab homes and minds of many fashionably challenged with one garment.
Celebrating 40 years of the wrap dress, LACMA's exhibit 'Journey of A Dress' lends to the inception of her concept, through the evolution of the piece, up to modern day adaptation. Her artwork, famedom and ads are displayed chronologically for patrons to travel through time with the designer and her progressive career.
The complimentary exhibit runs through April and is a must see!
