Diane von Furstenberg

Diane von Furstenberg | It all started for designer Diane von Furstenberg with one little dress. She entered the fashion world in the 1970s by designing easy knit dresses; her look took the world by storm when she introduced the wrap dress. More than five million wrap dresses were sold by the end of 1976, and the design landed on the covers of Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal. Von Furstenburg was born in Brussels, Belgium, and studied economics at the University of Geneva, where she met Austro-Italian Prince Egon von Furstenberg. They married and moved to New York where son Alexandre and daughter Tatiana were born. Von Furstenberg was a pioneer of TV-shopping in the 1990s, became a contributing editor to Vanity Fair magazine, and was elected to the board of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Last year, the style icon married longtime companion Barry Diller, chairman and CEO of USA Networks. Celebrity clients: Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, the Hilton sisters. Diane von Furstenberg landed on the fashion scene in 1972 with a simple, yet radical, credo: "Feel like a woman. Wear a dress." Five million jersey wrap dresses later, she had become a new icon for liberated women, who were inspired by the Princess (thanks to her marriage to Prince Egon von Furstenberg) who decided to have a career. The dresses were so celebrated, that 35 years after the original was created, young women were wearing vintage versions they found in thrift shops. Inspired, Diane von Furstenberg relaunched her clothing line in 1997 and has since gone on to even greater success. The DVF name is now on sportswear, cosmetics and jewelry.
