Diane von Fürstenberg is a fashion designer best known for her hallmark wrap dresses. Belgian born Diane von Furstenberg made fashion history with her signature jersey wrap dresses upon her arrival in New York City in 1972. Presently, the internationally-recognized DVF brand encompasses fashion, fine jewelry, accessories, cosmetics and fragrance. DVF, the collection, is sold in the most exclusive retail stores in over 50 countries including in the freestanding Diane von Furstenberg the Shop in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Antwerp. Her headquarters in New York City’s meatpacking district also include a theater space which has become a center for creativity and a launch pad for young artists.
Diane’s free-spirited independence and straightforward style has earned her iconic status among fashion-conscious women of every generation. In fact, her influence on fashion has been so profound that in June of 2005, Diane was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) for her lifetime of consistent, creative influence over fashion.
In addition to her business pursuits, Diane sits on the Boards of Directors for Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Housatonic Valley Association (HVA), IAC Corp. and Parson’s School of Design.
