One of our tipsters had a brush with greatness at the Diane von Furstenberg sale. "Just came from the preview day: tons and tons of sweaters—sweater dresses, long wrap sweaters, vnecks, cardigans. Unfortunately, none were so thrilling. Some cute printed dresses and blouses. Overall, all prices were lower than last year. (Samples are $40, cocktail dresses are $100, sweaters are $70). BUT this was my first ever designer sighting at a sample sale—DVF herself showed up, said hello to staff, perused the racks a bit and left. Looking AMAZING I might add." [RackedWire; Dealfeed]
