Diane von Furstenberg Chats About Her Spring Collection, Favorite Hobbies, and More at FNO

Diane von Furstenberg Interview Fashion's Night Out 2011

Fashion's Night Out in NYC yesterday was, as expected, a crazy, rockin' time. In between shopping and mingling, we caught up with the wonderful Diane von Furstenberg and chatted about her favorite thing about FNO, (not) staying sane during fashion week, and what to expect in her upcoming Spring '12 show. Listen up for the 411 from one of the world's most successful designers.

  • On Fashion's Night Out: It's so nice to walk the streets and just see that there are things happening.
  • On (not) staying sane during fashion week: I have my fashion show, so I'm not that sane right now. There's no time to relax.
  • On her Spring '12 collection: It's very fresh, and it's called Beginnings. Beginnings and hope, the inspiration is a little bit African.
  • On why she likes designing for Spring: Spring is all about color. My show is on 9/11, so I just wanted something very happy and that's why I called the collection Beginnings.
  • On what she likes to do when she's not designing: I like to read, hike, swim, and travel. I just read Sleeping With the Enemy, which is a very interesting book about Coco Chanel.
  • Now check out more images from her fun FNO party in SoHo!
