WATCH: The Secret Behind Diane Von Furstenberg's Post-Divorce Success
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Any fashionista worth her salt has a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress -- or a DvF knock-off -- in her closet. As ubiquitous as von Furstenberg's designs are today, you might figure that the famed designer had her whole career planned out from the get-go. Not exactly, she says. "I never knew what I wanted to do but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be," the fashion icon says in the clip above. "I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life -- and I became that woman." Von Furstenberg gained fame in the fashion world with her signature design in the wake of her 1972 split from German Prince Egon von Furstenberg. In her own words, she "exploded" onto the fashion scene after her divorce, selling as many as 25,000 dresses per week. The designer, who got remarried in 2001 to entertainment mogul Barry Diller, sat down for the interview above as part of the documentary "MAKERS: Women Who Make America," a jo ...

What You Don't Know About DVF's Famous Wrap Dress
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Any fashion-forward woman likely has at least one Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress in her closet. But what these fashionistas may not know is that the iconic frock was actually inspired by the designer's divorce. Instead of asking for alimony from her ex-husband, German Prince Egon von Furstenberg, after their 1972 divorce, she decided to make it on her own and introduced her now-legendary signature wrap dress instead. "Usually the fairy tale ends with the girl marrying the prince," von Furstenberg recently told W Magazine. "But mine started as soon as the marriage was over." Von Furstenberg "exploded" onto the scene after her divorce, selling as many as 25,000 dresses per week. The designer married Prince von Furstenberg in 1969, but they split three-and-a-half years later in 1972. She got remarried in 2001 to entertainment mogul Barry Diller. Watch the video above for more on the story behind the iconic dress.

  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1946
    Born
    Eduard Egon Peter Paul Giovanni Prinz zu Fürstenberg, born 29 June 1946 in Lausanne, Switzerland, was the elder son of Prince Tassilo zu Fürstenberg (1903–1989) and his first wife, Clara Agnelli (born 1920), elder sister of Fiat's chairman, Gianni Agnelli.
    More Details Hide Details After Clara's departure his father married Texas oil heiress Dr. Cecilie Amelia Hudson, née Blaffer. Fürstenberg's younger brother is Prince Sebastian zu Fürstenberg, and his sister is socialite and actress Princess Ira zu Fürstenberg. The House of Fürstenberg is an ancient German family which reigned over a small principality within the Holy Roman Empire until mediatized in 1806, henceforth retaining their official princely status until the fall of the German Empire in 1918, and thereafter maintaining aristocratic eminence through continued ownership of vast estates. Although zu rather than von is the predicate attached to the family's princely title (denoting that the family retained possession of, not merely past or nominal association with the Fürstenberg family seat), Egon and his sister chose to use the more familiar von for career purposes. Egon von Fürstenberg was born at Lausanne, Switzerland, was baptized by Pope John XXIII, and was thereafter brought up in great privilege in Venice, Italy. He earned a degree in economics at the University of Geneva, followed by an 18-month term in the Peace Corps in Burundi working as a teacher, and then two years as an investment banker in New York.
