In Person with Diane von Furstenberg

When I attended the CUSP event at Neiman Marcus on Wednesday, I was not expecting to meet Diane von Furstenberg herself and wear one of her famous wrap dresses in the same evening. I didn’t even realize she was going to be there in the flesh!

I think I’m still starstruck.

It was an honor to meet such an icon, to take a photo with her, and thank her for her fabulous work. She is an inspiration to me: as a fashion designer, as a business owner, and as a woman. I was dying for the chance to ask her a question and gain a crumb of wisdom, but as I’m sure you’d understand, she was being whisked from one dressing room to the next to visit with as many people as possible.

Here is the woman herself!

There were DVF dresses everywhere! As guests flitted about the store, holding glasses of bubbling champagne and sorting through racks of fabulous clothing, I visited with friends and then decided to try on a dress myself.

And here I am trying on one of Diane’s world-renowned wrap dresses! I felt pretty fabulous, I must say.

And finally, I took a photo with some of my dear friends:
