Diane von Furstenberg opens exhibit in Beijing, launches new travel book
Wednesday 06 April 2011
After vowing to increase her presence in the Chinese market a few years ago, US-based designer Diane von Furstenberg has brought her "Journey of a Dress" exhibit to Beijing.
The display that details her fashion house's history opened to the public at the Pace Gallery on April 4 after having traveled Moscow and São Paulo, also known as 'other important emerging markets,' in the past.
With the DvF brand becoming increasingly global, it seems only fitting that von Furstenberg, who also happens to be chairwoman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, has announced the release of a new book on designers' favorite spots around the world, called American Fashion Travel.
Featuring personal holiday memorabilia, questionnaires, photos, and anecdotes, this scrapbook-inspired tome can now be preordered via Assouline for $45.
Other fashion book announcements this week include fashion PR guru Kelly Cutrone's new guide Normal Gets You Nowhere ($13), which will hit Amazon in May, and StyleLikeU, a printed selection from the eponymous blog, that is now available at Amazon for around $18.
