More About The Woman I Wanted to Be by Diane Von Furstenberg
 
 
 
Overview
One of the most influential, admired, and colorful women of our time: fashion designer and philanthropist Diane von Furstenberg tells the most personal stories from her life, about family, love, beauty and business: "It's so good, you'll want to take notes" (People).

Diane von Furstenberg started with a suitcase full of jersey dresses and an idea of who she wanted to be--in her words, "the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn't rely on a man to pay her bills." She has since become that woman, establishing herself as a major force in the fashion industry, all the while raising a family, maintaining that "my children are my greatest creation."

In The Woman I Wanted to Be, "an intriguing page-turner filled with revelations" (More), von Furstenberg reflects on her extraordinary life--from her childhood in Brussels to her days as a young, jet-set princess, to creating the dress that came to symbolize independence and power for generations of women. With remarkable honesty and wisdom, von Furstenberg mines the rich territory of what it means to be a woman. She opens up about her family and career, overcoming cancer, building a global brand, and devoting herself to empowering other women. This "inspiring, compelling, deliciously detailed celebrity autobiography...is as much of a smashing success as the determined, savvy, well-intentioned woman who wrote it" (Chicago Tribune).
