Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fascinating.” (New York Times Sunday Book Review)

“Un-put-downable.” (Wall Street Journal)

One of BUSTLE’s “11 Women In Nonfiction Who Are Totally Killing It” “Diliberto captures Diane’s determination in the early days to build a fashion brand and her great success striking the exact right note at the right moment with the creation of her modern wrap dress.” (Providence Journal)

“A compelling portrait.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

“Absorbing . . . an all-access pass into the life of this enterprising artist [and] a lively portrait of a bold and determined woman as colorful and alluring as her fashions.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Fast and engrossing...a fun and insightful read about both the woman and the larger fashion universe.” (Chicago Business Journal)

“A fresh look at DVF’s life...as powerfully seductive as the designer’s iconic wrap dress.” (DuJour)

“Fascinating . . . examines the designer’s rise to stardom from her postwar, European childhood to the personal scandals of her adulthood through a feminist lens.” (Bustle)

“Diliberto’s biography of a determined yet often self-destructive woman adds to the legacy this force for fashion and female autonomy has bequeathed to the world.” (Booklist)

“Explores the pulse and impulses of the designer.” (Daily Mail (London))

From the Back Cover

Diane von Furstenberg is a sweeping biography of one of the most influential and controversial legends of New York fashion—the iconic designer whose creations captured the modern feminist spirit. Gioia Diliberto brings von Furstenberg’s extraordinary life into focus, from her post—World War II childhood in Belgium, through her rise to the top of the fashion world in the decadent seventies, to her humiliating failures both professional and personal, and her remarkable comeback in the nineties.

Drawing on interviews with DVF’s family, friends, lovers, employees, and the designer herself, Diliberto creates a captivating portrait of a pop culture heroine, one who played a key role in the development of American style at a time when fashion was evolving from rare luxury to marketing monster. Diliberto also offers a look into the rarified world of the nation’s elite—an exclusive club where fashion, culture, society, politics, and Hollywood collide. Lively and insightful, Diane von Furstenberg is a modern fable of self-invention, fame, wealth, failure, and success, pulled together with the style and assuredness of a DVF dress.
