Diane Von Furstenberg's History

Diane Von Furstenberg is descended from an Eastern European Jewish line (as am I, perhaps we're related?) Her maiden name was Diane Halfin. However, at 18 she married a German prince - Prince Egon of Fürstenberg. The marriage was not desperately popular with a certain matriarch in the the groom's family, with them being German and Diane being, well, Jewish. However, her future mother-in-law was happy and liked Diane. The marriage lasted long enough to produce two children (three years), and Diane and her husband parted on good terms. In 2001, Diane married again, this time to Barry Diller, an old friend. This was followed by her naturalisation as a US citizen in 2002.

 

Her career started after her first marriage, where she was desperate to prove that she was more than just a lucky rich girl. The design for which she became best known, the wrap dress, is now on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in Manhattan, New York. Since her initial success, Diane's designs have gone from strength to strength, and her designs are sold in high-end stores including Harvey Nichols and Selfridges in the UK. For convenience, many of her designs are also available online from selected websites, featured on this site.

 

If you live in Belgium, take a trip to the fashion quarter in Antwerp and visit the boutiques there, many of which feature designs by DVF.

For fashionistas, keeping up with the latest trends can be costly, but for some clothing items, you can buy now and pay later to spread the cost.

Her designs are frequently abbreviated to the acronym DVF. She joins Jean-Claude Van Damme as one of those rare people - a famous Belgian. No, you can't include Hercule Poirot - he's fictional!
