Diane Von Furstenberg: The Most Important Relationship You’ll Have Is the One With Yourself

On this podcast episode, Diane Von Furstenberg, founder of the DVF clothing line, discusses the importance of character in bouncing back from setbacks.

Diane Von Furstenberg didn’t plan a career in fashion — she just wanted to earn her own money.

Staying open to new ideas led to her launching the DVF clothing line. During a visit to Stanford Graduate School of Business, Von Furstenberg explained how she got started — and what helped her rebuild her business when she “lost it all.”
