If a DVF wrap dress can’t get you a date, maybe Diane von Furstenberg herself can!
Diane von Furstenberg is teaming up with the online dating service Match.com to help the fashion-ensemble-d and dating challenged find the love of their life. Furstenberg will also be pushing her new DIANE fragrance, as well as the message “Be the woman you want to be!” (well, “Girl Power!” must have been taken). The two will host three styling events featuring all the typical first date scenarios: cappuccinos, cocktails, and dinner.
New York was the first stop last night in the tour but don’t fret. You still have another chance to catch them around the US. The DVF boutiques in Miami and Dallas will hold the same event next week on November 10. Match.com will also be posting exclusive tips from the event on their blog.
“Dating is really all about confidence,” says the designer. “It is about dressing in a way that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. Match.com and I wanted to do something fun to encourage women to be themselves and to go for it!”
Between this and the Rebecca Minkoff condoms, I think all these designers are in it just to get fashionistas hooked-up.
