Diane von Furstenberg celebrates International Women's Day
Designer Diane von Furstenberg is participating in a monthlong celebration of International Women's Day, which was March 8. For one thing, the wrap-dress maven has launched a line of Proud to be Woman products to help promote the empowerment of women globally.
For the third year in a row, DVF released a Proud to be Woman music compilation play button ($30) and drop card for digital download at DVF boutiques, DVF.com and iTunes. The eight-track list has songs by Ingrid Michaelson, A Fine Frenzy, Dragonette, Jasmine Ash, Miss Li, Yuna, Toby Lightman and Lissie.
Also available at DVF boutiques and online is the Proud to be Woman tote (pictured above, $40) and an Iphone case ($25) featuring the same heart logo. Both come with a Proud to be Women compilation digital download drop card. All proceeds from the sales will go to benefit the non-governmental organization Vital Voices, a group dedicated to promoting women's initiatives.
DVF also plans a cocktail shopping event at the store in Los Angeles from 6 to 8 p.m. March 20. The event will feature a performance by A Fine Frenzy and also benefit the Vital Voices organization. There will be other events at DVF boutiques around the country throughout March.
DVF is donating 10% of sale proceeds from March 8-15 to Vital Voices. For more information, visit DVF.com.
