Hi all,

I am happy to share this Forbes interview of Diane von Furstenberg with you. DVF is a woman I adore. I love her sense of style, I love her timeless elegance, I love her story and I love the smart way she keeps reinventing the wrap dress (like in the picture above). The video tells briefly about her career path as a woman, how she became DVF by creating a single wrap dress.
And for the emerging designers, I pinpointed 4 advice she gave in the interview:

  • Make sure that all that you offer makes sense
  • Be hard on yourself in terms of judging
  • Once you have critized yourself, you have to believe in yourself and go for it
  • Be true to yourself and stick to it
