Designer Diane von Furstenberg was in town this past weekend making several stops at various Miami shopping destinations. Miami Chic caught up with the powerhouse at a cocktail event held at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Shops of Bal Harbour. We found several fashionista fans of DVF donning her designs and other attendees rocking other labels. Our second group of style setters went from simple to sequins to polka dots all in DVF.
