For more than 40 years, Diane von Furstenberg has designed beautiful, covetable dresses and ready-to-wear pieces for a strong, stylish, independent woman. Among her other chic milestones? Giving us a plethora of signature wrap-dress prints, being honored with the CFDA lifetime achievement award, moonlighting as a judge on America's Next Top Model, and committing millions of dollars to New York City's High Line public park. That said, each season DVF delivers a runway collection that celebrates bold femininity via print, color, and ultrawearable silhouettes. There's a sense of playfulness, with a sophisticated finish, that evolves with the ebb and flow of trends.
