Throwback Thursday - Diane Von Furstenberg

With Diane Von Furstenberg's new show "House of DVF" premiering on E! this week, it's only fitting that this week's "Throwback Thursday" should feature this style icon.

Ms. Von Furstenberg made a name for herself in the 1970's, with a jersey wrap dress that became so popular, it quickly sold over a million pieces. The mad rush to acquire these dresses is understandable - they're insanely comfortable, easy to wear and really flattering. Currently, you can find  DVF wrap dresses for around $335 online and new. However, if you don't have an extra $300 lying around but you can still splurge just a little bit, a vintage DVF wrap dress averages around $100 on Etsy.

The success of the DVF wrap dress led to an incredible amount of success - clothing, cosmetics, fragrances, sunglassses, luggage and even a publishing house.

In 2012 Diane was named the most powerful woman in fashion by Forbes and today, the DVF brand is sold in 55 countries and has 98 shops worldwide.

"The truth is, my religion is truth," Diane tells us. "That's what I practice. And it's a big job to practice truth. But if you do it every day, it's like pruning a tree, it's wonderful." - Diane Von Furstenberg

"I always wanted to be a femme fatale. Even when I was a young girl, I never really wanted to be a girl. I wanted to be a woman." - Diane Von Furstenberg

"You can have a good time and still empower women. My mission in life is to empower women..." - Diane Von Furstenberg

"Be yourself, not an imitation" - Diane Von Furstenberg
