The beautiful and iconic global fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg recently visited the Bellevue Collection to officially open her new DVF boutique and to promote her new book “The Woman I Wanted to Be.” DVF — how Furstenberg is now referred to — was a true princess who created the famous wrap dress 40 years ago this past January.

“The minute it came out it was madness, and I became that woman through a little dress,” Furstenberg recalled. “I became confident as I gave confidence to others.”

On the back cover of her new book, Anna Wintour, editor of American Vogue magazine, noted that “Diane’s book evokes everything she has lived through. It is honest, direct, and fascinating-just like the author herself.”

In her book DVF shares her journey and what she learned along the way about love, beauty and aging. Her story will surely inspire optimism and confidence with readers of many ages.

She autographed her book “Love is Life”, Diane — with a small heart next to her name. The perfect motto for us to embrace and live by every day.
