A handsome mix of industry was out last night to meet the one and only, Diane von Furstenberg. Beginning at 6p.m., the crowd mingled and sipped cocktails on the third floor of one of Chicago's retail landmarks, Neiman Marcus. DVF politely took photos with the crowd and talked with the guests before the show. She was incredibly engaging and welcoming and was so glad to see so many beautiful Chicagoans show up to support her legendary brand. I had the honor of joining Barbara Glass at the event and was pretty ecstatic to learn that we were sitting front row! Another great event and another dream come true. Check out some of the fantastic looks she delivered, and the gorgeous crowd that came out.
A special hello goes out to the adorable 14 year old girl who was escorted to the show by the charming David Sanchez of Chosen Management. She asked to take a photo with me and was so excited to be at her very first fashion show. A Diane von Furstenberg show at 14? Now, that's exciting!
