I admire Diane von Furstenberg for her talent, her work, her resillience.

The new Coco Channel
What an inspirational woman!
Now I admire her even more for this innitiative:
The Empowerment Plan
DVF will match dollar-for-dollar the first $50,000 raised in support of the non-profit, founded by Veronika Scott, recipient of the People’s Voice Award at the 2014 DVF Awards. The Empowerment Plan, based in Detroit, aims at breaking the cycle of homelessness for single women and their families. The Empowerment Plan hires women living in local shelters and trains them to become full-time seamstresses, providing them and their families with access to a stable income and secure housing, as well as independence and freedom.
Both those behind the Empowerment Plan and DVF share a similar belief in the importance of giving women the opportunity to gain control over their lives. As Scott has said, “Diane emanates all that we stand for and continues to prove that despite the struggles one may face, we are all able to accomplish greatness. By matching the first $50,000 raised through this campaign, she is giving back to women looking to change the direction of their own lives by conquering their own fears. Her belief in our work will empower women facing homelessness to break that cycle and to become the person they have always wanted to be.”
Not only will donating help empower women in need, but with every $30 you donate you will be entered for a chance to win a free DVF wrap dress of your choosing!
