Amazing and unbelievable moment meeting Diane von Furstenberg.
Fashion lover like me always dream to meet world's famous fashion designers at least once in a life time, and 'way too far' dream going to fashion week in those fashion capitals. Meeting Diane von Furstenberg in person is a hug opportunity for me when I got the invitation from DVF Thailand to join the Grand Opening of DVF store at the Emquartier, the newest fashion and shopping destination in Bangkok.
Before meeting Diane in person, it was great to meet and chat amazing bloggers like Gail of The Equinox Fashion, and Elise of A Piece of Elise, also Tara who I use to meet her when I visited Pomelo last year,and first meet Ramida of Style Voyage in DVF Pre-Fall'15 wrap dress. Then we all enter the hall way, waiting for the fashion show of the Fall 2015 to start. Even though I've seen the collection before (of course via Style.com), but I love to see some of them again in live moment. Diane gorgeously introduced herself, and DVF before the show begin. I really have no idea how many time I say "OMG" to myself.
My starstruck feeling continue when I was "really" going to meet her, like me and Diane, no one else. I can't explain how happy I am. She was one of my fashion idols whose named in many of my fashion textbooks, who appeared in my favorite fashion reality show, Project Runway (do you remember when those competitors grabbed DVF fabric in the house?). I feel like I'm dreaming,but it's true. After I've introduced myself, and expressed how glad I am to meet her, and want to be come a successful designer like her. I still remember what she said to me with her powerful and beautiful smile. "Intira, I'm glad to meet you, too. Finally you found me, and I'm sure you'll become one" . I will remember this forever.
It was amazing to have fashion moment like that. It really inspire, and motivate me to keep doing what I love, and that's absolutely FASHION. Thank you Diane von Furstenberg and DVF Thailand for this great fashion experience.//♥♥INTIRA
