2014 is a landmark year for renowned designer Diane von Furstenberg: Her iconic wrap dress turned 40, and on May 1, she opens her 95th store, in Bellevue Square near Center Court. “The Seattle area is so gorgeous,” says von Furstenberg. “It is blessed with the most beautiful nature and filled with so much creativity and innovation. I am thrilled to be opening my first shop in the Northwest!” The 2,302-square-foot store features a white, gallery-like interior punctuated with the graphic patterns that DVF is known for. Shoppers will find the full range of the designer’s sexy, modern, feminine and fierce ready-to-wear collection, which includes shoes, handbags, evening wear and that versatile, curve-loving wrap dress that started it all.
