The amazing team at DvF hosted a few, very lucky, ladies for an evening rendezvous – all inspired by the fall collection. It was a three-part event full of mystery (The evening itinerary was all kept a secret, we learned as we went.), possibility (A personal conversation with Diane herself – Oh, the possibilities!), and drama (The evening ended at the top of the Standard Hotel with a dramatic view of Manhattan’s skyline.)

Of course, the best part was getting quality time with the designer herself. She is even more inspiring, authentic, and savvy than I imagined. Since my words will never do her justice, I leave you with my favorite quote to think about this weekend.

“I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I always knew the woman I wanted to be.” – Diane von Furstenberg
