With the exciting launch of her second memoir, The Woman I Wanted to Be, coming out next week, I thought it only appropriate to highlight my first Monday Musing on one of my idols, Diane von Fürstenberg. Thanks to DVF’s iconic wrap dress, which is my #1 fashion staple, I have received countless complements on my wardrobe through the years. Her bold use of color and patterns have inspired many Twiggy dress designs and backgrounds.
Newsweek Magazine: 1976
Diane von Fürstenberg started out with a suitcase full of jersey dresses and an idea of who she wanted to be—in her words, “the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn’t rely on a man to pay her bills.” She has since become that woman, establishing herself as a global brand and a major force in the fashion industry, all the while raising a family and maintaining “my children are my greatest creation.”
She is both aspirational and inspirational. Hats off to you, DVF. May you continue to dress us fabulous!
