Diane von Furstenberg entered the world of fashion in 1970 when she moved to New York and, two years later, founded her eponymous line. In 1974, the Belgium born designer created the wrap dress, which came to symbolize power and independence for a generation of women and helped establish Diane as a legendary and crucial fixture in the industry. By 1976, more than five million dresses had been sold and Diane, at only 29 years old, was featured on the cover of Newsweek. In 1997, Diane re-launched the brand with renewed vitality and went on to receive numerous accolades including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), of which she now serves as Chairman. This private audience with Ms Furstenberg is complemented by a personal tour of DVF headquarters, private luxury transfers and accommodation at Soho House NYC.
