Diane von Furstenberg rose to fame when she married Prince Egon von Furstenberg in 1969, then again after launching her iconic body-hugging jersey wrap dress in the '70s. Diane continues to share ownership of the DVF brand with her husband and children.
DVF is known for bold prints and the iconic wrap design. You can now find wrap skirts, tops, and jumpsuits, but the enduring Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress will always remain the brand's bestseller.
Each year Diane von Furstenberg grants a DVF Award to four women who display leadership, strength, and courage in their commitment to women’s causes. $50,000 is granted to each woman to further their work.
