    Diane von Furstenberg

    Founder & Co-Chairman, DVF

    Diane von Furstenberg first entered the fashion world in 1972 with a suitcase full of jersey dresses. Two years later, she created the wrap dress, which came to symbolize power and independence for an entire generation of women. By 1976, she had sold over a million of the dresses and was featured on the cover of Newsweek. In 1997, after a hiatus from fashion, Diane re-launched the iconic dress that started it all, reestablishing her company as the global luxury lifestyle brand that it is today. DVFnow offers four complete collections a year with an extensive range of accessories including shoes, handbags, scarves, eyewear, fine jewelry, luggage, fragrance and home. DVF is sold in over 70 countries worldwide and has 54 freestanding shops.
