Designer and business mogul Diane von Furstenberg personifies a feminist ideal of having it all. Born in Belgium, she made her way to New York on the heels of marrying a prince. In 1974, she burst onto the American fashion scene with her signature wrap dress—a design that revolutionized the way women approach fashion. Her story is one that’s equal parts fairy tale and perseverance.
