Time to shower-steam those wrap dresses: In an homage to her Belgian roots, newly-anointed CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg, will be co-hosting “The Blossom Project” next week, along with Consul General of Belgium Renilde Loeckx-Drozdiak. The event, “celebrates five blossoming fashion designers emerging out of the European epicenter of progressive thinking — Belgium,” crows the release. If selective capitalization of proper names is an indicator of “progressive thinking,” then as far as we’re concerned, Belgium rightfully stakes its claim on the bleeding edge.
