“Journey of a Dress,” a retrospective of four decades of wraps by Diane, features plenty of DVF herself: The mannequins are molded after her own face and her famous cheekbones. Then there’s the gallery of portraits of her by Andy Warhol, Barbara Kruger, Chuck Close, Francesco Clemente, Helmut Newton and Annie Leibovitz, to name a few.
At the time a newlywed, she was just 22 when she launched her first line, and 26 when she created the first wrap. She was in her 50s when she relaunched the wrap dress in 1997 after a decade-long absence from retail. It was again an instant hit, and the contemporary collection retails in 1,500 points of sale in 55 countries and 85 branded boutiques worldwide.
