Belgian-born American designer Diane Von Furstenberg is best known for her iconic wrap dress and signature prints. She launched her company and business in her mid 20’s skyrocketed when she introduced the wrap dress. It was an instant sell out but after some time, too many copies of the wrap dresses were on the market, the brand lost its appeal and the company had to close.
In 1997 she re-launched her company and reintroduced the wrap dress. The wrap dress came in different exotic prints and colours and is still as popular today as it was in the past. Her designs are often worn by celebrities including actress Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Alba.
Diane Von Furstenberg is the President of CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). In addition, she was awarded the The Lifetime Leadership Award in 2005 and listed as Forbes 68th most powerful woman in the world.
Today, she has over 133 stores worldwide and offers womenswear, accessories, handbags and shoes
