Diane Von Furstenberg celebrated the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress in style. AJC.com reported on Jan. 11 that the fashion designer celebrated the opening day of “Journey of a Dress”. The exhibit celebrates the timeless dress that she introduced in the 1970s.

The wrap dress is an easy and effortless dress that ties at the waist. It’s become a staple in many women’s closets. The wrap dress has never gone out of style, which has made it so iconic.

Von Furstenberg is also known for using patterns and bright colors in her collections. Most of her designs brighten up the space at the exhibit. Each collection has its own theme. A group of mannequins are dressed in a variety of colors as they stand atop a snakeskin patterned floor in front of geometric print walls.

The 67-year-old designer was excited about opening this exhibit. She said, “This is the first time that I ever honored the wrap dress, and she did so much for me,” Von Furstenberg speaks of her dress as if it’s a person. “She made me famous. She paid for all my bills. And tonight we celebrate the wrap dress.”

The exhibit was not without its share of celebrity sightings. Gwyneth Paltrow attended the event with husband Chris Martin. Demi Moore arrived with her new 27-year-old boyfriend Sean Friday. Other celebrity attendees included Ashley Olsen, Allison Williams, Rooney Mara, Rachel Zoe, Anderson Cooper and Rosario Dawson.

The exhibit “Journey of a Dress” is not just dedicated to the wrap dress. It’s also dedicated to the designer herself. It includes portraits and paintings of Diane Von Furstenberg with artists Andy Warhol and Annie Leibovitz. The exhibit is on display at the Wilshire May Company Building until April 1.
