NEW YORK — Over the years, Diane von Furstenberg has posed for artists like Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente and Anh Duong, and more photographers than she probably cares to remember. But when it came to her first major foray into print advertising since relaunching her label over a decade ago, the designer made a strategic decision to stay out of the picture.
"I want to differentiate the person from the brand," she said. "The person is one thing that is so attached to the label because I am the founder, but then there is also the brand, and I thought it should have another face. It's also about the legacy."
