try with this:

            Dim DisplayName as String
           ' Get the type of MyClass1.
            Dim myType as Type = TypeOf(MyClass1)
            ' Get the property info
            Dim pop as PropertyInfo = myType.GetProperty("DisplayName")
            ' Get attribute list
            Dim attrs() as Object = prop.GetCustomAttribues(TypeOf(DisplayNameAttribute), False)
            ' check if attribute exists
            If attrs.Length > 0
                   DisplayName = DirectCast(attrs(0), DisplayNameAttribute).DisplayName
