DVF to give away half her fortune!

06 August 2010

It's official! It's cool to be kind! It must be because Diane Von Furstenberg has promised to give away half her fortune to the Giving Pledge - an initiative set up by Bill Gates of Microsoft and investor Warren Buffett to encourage America's richest families to donate money to society's most serious problems.

DVF has risen from Seventies fashion maverick with her clingy wrap up wonder dress to veritable elder stateswoman of fashion, heading up the Council of Fashion Designers of America (New York’s answer to the BFC) and acting as mentor and friend to the new generation of designers, like her protégé, Nathan Jenden.

What a nice gesture to see someone giving back like this. Bravo Diane!
