“I really didn’t know what I wanted to do when I was growing up, but I wanted to be an independent woman who could pay her own bills,” Diane von Furstenberg told a packed audience at the Fashion Institute of Technology Tuesday evening.
Von Furstenberg, who has served as president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America since 2006, was the first speaker for “The CFDA at 50: The Presidents Speak” series celebrating 50 years of the CFDA’s achievements. The next two speakers will be Stan Herman on April 10 and Oscar de la Renta on April 19.
