The Chatroom: Diane von Furstenberg Interview

Leandra sits down with the iconic designer who considers herself of the millennial mindset


Diane von Furstenberg is the ultimate household name when it comes to fashion. She’s a style icon no matter your definition of the word, an industry legend among the old and new guard and a true power player in the world of business. But do you know what she’s most known for?

Three things.

1) The ever-flattering, simplistically genius (not to mention timeless) wrap dress.

2) Rather than a stoic half-bow, she dances on the runway at the end of her shows’ finales — it’s her way of saying thank you to the audience.

3) Her fantastic advice.

And advice is exactly what she gives in this very special episode of The Chatroom, spanning every topic from romance to self-love to career. (Not to mention the tweets of yours that she answered.) Why you’re still reading this is beyond me, however. Scroll back up and watch what the inimitable Diane von Furstenberg has to say!
