Family, Fashion and von Furstenberg

Panache welcomed Diane von Furstenberg, fashion royalty, to a trunk show in Sun Valley Village

Panache welcomed Diane von Furstenberg, fashion royalty, to a trunk show in Sun Valley Village

Sun Valley is a magical place and that magic bubbles up in unexpected ways. On Thursday, at the Panache boutique in the Sun Valley Village, it surfaced as world-famous clothing and accessories designer Diane von Furstenberg greeted shoppers by first name, exchanged hugs and caught up on family news (with her own family in attendance) during her annual trunk show.

Champagne flowed and von Furstenberg’s gorgeous line of pre-fall clothes, handbags and shoes were in the spotlight as elegant ladies enjoyed a first peek at everything DVF. Ms. von Furstenberg personally pulled pieces for the shoppers, suggesting styles, colors and perfect accessories to complete a look.

This show was the sixth year DVF has offered a first glimpse of the fall lines to Sun Valley shoppers. Panache owner Kathy Crosson said it is something she always looks forward to. The relationship between the high-end boutique and the famous designer developed when von Furstenberg visited town with her husband, Barry Diller, for a high profile conference. “She saw that we carried her line and came in to say hello,” said Kathy. “She asked if we would like to do a trunk show with her and the answer was, of course, yes!”

Thursday was another rousing success, with dozens of women enjoying the high energy evening. But all this glamor was for a good cause as each year the trunk show supports a local non-profit organization. This year, ten percent of profits benefited The Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence. A fashion show Wednesday night, entitled Fearless and Fashionable, also featured the stunning collection, again raising money and awareness for the Advocates.
