Let's Get Digital

Runs from 3/8 - 3/11

To highlight DVF’s commitment to innovation, we’ve partnered with Microsoft and Om in order to create unique digital installations that bring a new dimension to the on-site fashion experience:

Enjoy front row seats at our Spring 18 New York Fashion Week catwalk show (collection currently in-store) through Windows Mixed Reality headsets, or be transported to El Salvador to see and experience how the artisans employed by Sequence, a for-profit organization that we partnered with for our Spring 18 collection, create their unique products.

Tell DVF what it means for you to be in charge by filming your own customizable clip in our #INCHARGE video booth.

Referencing Diane’s iconic “cube photo,” step into our special photo booth to create yours, with your own words.

Come join us to experience, create, and share on social media—and if we love your work, we may feature it online!
