This morning at 9am, the doors to the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale, hosted in the designer's showroom at 260 Fifth Avenue, opened to the public. As you can see from the photo, the place has been completely mobbed since. A Racked correspondent writes: "They said it was taking an hour [to get in]. Two lines all the way around the block...in direct sunlight. The space looked huge it looked like there was so much stuff. I'm so bummed. There were so many people." Via Madison Avenue Spy, the price list is as follows: Wrap and vintage dresses are $175, regular dresses are $150, gowns are $300, bathing suits are $80, skirts are $80 and samples are $50. If you're planning on going, it might be a good idea to bring a bottle of water and a book to stay hydrated and busy, as the crowds aren't exactly dispersing.
