Diane von Furstenberg at LACMA West

The Journey of a Dress, Diane von Furstenberg's show celebrating the 40th anniversary of her wrap dress is a riot of pattern -- my idea of a good time!
After going down a pink hallway, full of poster-sized enlargements of early ads and celebrities in The Wrap, you enter a cavernous mirrored room full of many iterations of the concept.
Ambient disco plays pleasantly in the background and you are allowed to take as many photos as you wish.
This design is part of a 2014 limited edition collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation
Triple pattern mix and unusual triangular style lines
Sporty trims
"Oh. Hello!"
I was delighted to find the free photo booth, sponsored by Hive Social Lab.
You just had to add #journeyofadress to your photo in Instagram.
Then this lovely gal set up the printing.
Et voila!
If you are in near LA's Miracle Mile, I strongly suggest going!
With free admission, the show is up until 4/1/14.
