NEW YORK — In the past two years, Diane von Furstenberg introduced a new tradition to the CFDA Awards. As president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, she has taken it upon herself to personally ask mingling crowds during cocktails to take their seats in Alice Tully Hall’s auditorium so the evening could move along in a timely manner.
This hands-on approach has come to define von Furstenberg’s first two terms as American fashion’s chief. Now that she is in her third term — the bylaws were changed to allow her another stint — and executive director Steven Kolb just marked his fifth anniversary, the duo has plenty to look forward to.
