I met the iconic designer, Diane von Furstenberg, in September 2012 at the Fashion's Night Out event at her shop in Soho. I remember the feeling I had when I stood beside her and had a conversation. She told me I was beautiful. I was absolutely beside myself! This extraordinary woman was even more wonderful in person. She is an icon in the fashion world, and ever so creative. Some of my favorite dresses are her wrap dresses.
When I heard Diane was releasing a book, I was so excited! It quickly went to the top of my reading list. I couldn't wait to hear about Diane's life and stories that influenced and inspired her.
The amount of pure joy that came when a DVF box was placed on my desk is something I cannot measure. A signed copy of The Woman I Wanted to Be sat in front of me.
I started reading.
I don't think I put the book down. I don't want to ruin anything for someone else who just purchased this book, but it is a masterpiece. I really enjoyed it, and would recommend it to any woman. There are many pearls of wisdom from Diane hidden among the pages.
