My Monday Motivational Woman is my fashion icon Diane Von Furstenburg. She was born Diane Simone Michelle Halfin on December 31, 1946, later marrying Prince Egon of Furstenburg which,making her a former Princess of Furstenburg. DVF is famously known for her wrap dresses which, may I say I love a Wrap dress it helps women with extra curves and weight look a little slimmer (My Opinion).2005 CFDA ( Council of Fashion Designers of America) awarded her the lifetime achievement award later, in 2006 she became the president of the CFDA.
Diane Von Furstenburg is not my #MMW today because she is my fashion icon but, for the fact she is a very hands on kind of woman with a huge heart and a love for Philanthropy. I love the fact she wanted to create her own lane outside of her “Prince Husband” whom was also a fashion designer and we can all agree she did an amazing job creating her own lane for herself. DVF also awards woman whom has a strong passion, commitment, courage and love for women’s causes as she do too. Lastly I chose her today because of how much she loves my birth place New York City that she commits on bettering the parks throughout NYC area.
