With each collection, Diane von Furstenberg fearlessly forges new paths for luxury fashion brands with her iconic company. In an interview with the New York Times, she said, "I am not a good CEO, but I have the passion and the force of a founder, and therefore I can make things happen. I can inspire people and motivate people." Her industry leadership combined with her strong business team has kept DVF at the forefront of fashion's future.
In the second part of this two-part episode of Fashion Counsel, partner Anthony Lupo talks with Robert Almerini, President & COO of DVF, about the future of distribution models, customer relationships with the iconic brand, and retail stores on 5th Avenue.
