The Hotel Amigo, a Rocco Forte hotel situated in the center of Brussels, has introduced the Diane von Furstenberg Suite in tribute to the well-known Belgian-American fashion designer. Adorned with her signature style, the suite features a striking zebra rug, two large silk scarves created by Andy Warhol, and an impressive collection of artwork that honors her remarkable legacy.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic wrap dress that brought von Furstenberg to fame, and to commemorate this milestone, the Brussels Fashion & Lace Museum is dedicating its newest exhibit, Woman before Fashion, to her. In conjunction with the exhibit, Hotel Amigo is offering guests a special opportunity to experience the World of Diane von Furstenberg by reserving the DVF suite from April 18, 2023, to January 7, 2024.
The exhibit showcases over 50 models and an extensive range of iconography that illuminates the career, designs, and personality of this remarkable woman.
