Diane Von Furstenberg will celebrate her birthday with 63 candles on her cake. Diane is interesting because in 1969 she married Prince Egon of Furstenberg, making her a princess. (When they divorced, I think she no longer qualified as a princess.) When she married Egon, she decided she did not want to be a “plain little girl who married beyond her desserts.” In 1970 she began designing women’s clothing, hitting a design home-run with a wrap dress in 1973. I had the Vogue pattern for that dress and made about three dresses.
I also had the same dress leave me half dressed when the tie came undone.
Here are some Diane von Furstenberg shoes to admire.
I think I will carefully wear my wrap dress for tonight’s party to celebrate.
