Diane von Furstenberg founded her eponymous line in 1972. It has since become a global luxury fashion brand celebrated for its bold and creative approach to color and print, and admired for its sensual femininity. Renowned for its iconic wrap dress and signature prints, DVF now offers a full collection of ready-to-wear and accessories, and has established itself as a leader of feminine silhouettes in the fashion industry. As Founder and Chairman of DVF, Diane continues to devote much of her time to her many philanthropic endeavors.
Headquartered in New York City, DVF has a global distribution network in over 70 countries and with over 875 points of distribution, including 111 DVF owned and partnered stores throughout North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific.
Diane von Furstenberg’s commitment to empowering women is expressed not only through fashion but also philanthropy and mentorship. She serves on the board of Vital Voices, a non-governmental organization that supports female leaders and entrepreneurs around the world. In 2010, with the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation, Diane established the DVF Awards to honour and provide grants to women who have displayed leadership, strength and courage in their commitment to their causes.
