I had a wonderfully awesome visit to LACMA yesterday with my friends Caroline and Marcia. Our mission? Visit the “Journey of a Dress” exhibit on Dian von Furstenberg and see all the free art we can (I tried looking for the free food too but Caroline just laughed). The exhibit was everything I thought it would be – festive, inspiring, historical, and totally GIRL POWERed out! Oh yes, images of the Spice Girls kept popping in my head, haha…
This exhibit was celebrating the 40th anniversary of the WRAP DRESS, originally designed by Diane von Furstenberg. The opening hallways were bright pink as you can see, and featured large prints of famous women wearing the wrap dress in it’s 40 year history. It was pretty cool to see how classic and universally flattering it is on everyone.
Then we came to this room, featuring dozens and dozens of original wrap dresses from the 70′s, 80′s, 90′s and through the 2000′s. I was blown away at all the different colors and patterns.
Even the floors were covered in print.
We made it a point to pick our favorites. Caroline was bored to death with the black and white ones, and gravitated to the colorful geometric prints. Marcia was more of a floral gal. I myself loved these:
The show is running until April 1st, so please make a visit to LACMA one of these weekends. We also made sure to stop by the floating rock, the spaghetti noodles, and the Berlin Wall. Hahah, these are absolutely NOT what these exhibits are called, but maybe it will entice you to go and see what I’m talking about! Hope you enjoy it!
