Fürstenberg

(von) Diane (1946). Designer of Belgian origin, she is famous for her short jersey wrap dresses. After studying economics in Spain, France, and Switzerland, in 1968 she married the Austrian-Italian Prince Egon von Fürstenberg and in 1969 moved to the U.S. During the 1970s she showed her designs to the buyers at the big New York department stores, who showed great interest in her styles and in her aristocratic name. In the late 1990s, Vogue America dedicated an article to her short jersey wrap dresses which were back in style, especially among the well-off girls of Manhattan.
