I'm so psyched that I got to visit the DVF 40 Journey of a Dress exhibit while I'm still in LA! The exhibit was breathtaking with the grandness of it all given that the evolution of Diane's wrap dresses have more or less stayed the same in functionality and practicality yet subtle differences in collar lengths, fabric, pattern, and colour made very powerful distinctions in time. Having 40 years of dresses laid out in diamond sections inside the Wilshire May Co. Building at LACMA with full wraparound wallpaper in the many vivid patterns Diane has used, was a design feat of its own. Not to mention the Barbie pink timeline hallway that led into the pièce de résistance or the crisp white photography hall complete with artworks done by Warhol along with an awesome 3D video by Yi Zhou. What a well executed exhibit; tastefully done and visually stimulating. It's on until April so go discover the journey of a dress at LACMA. Admission is free too!

  7. Such an awesome batch of photos. You used the exhibit so well as a backdrop to your outfits. I've seen this exhibit pop up on a few websites and I wish I could go so badly. Hopefully I can make it before the closing date.
