Diane von Furstenberg’s comfortable clothes

Diane von Furstenberg’s clothes empower women because they are “comfortable”. The 63-year-old fashion designer – who is best-known for creating the wrap-around dress – explained females are at their most beautiful when they feel confident and her designs do exactly that.

She said: “My clothes empower women. Not because they have big shoulders and make you look like a man. But because they are very comfortable, they mould to your body, they are very flexible, and they make you really comfortable.

“And if you’re comfortable you feel confident. And if you’re confident you feel beautiful.”

The iconic businesswoman – who recently redesigned 20 suites for exclusive London hotel Claridge’s – revealed she finds it “flattering” how young women still gravitate to her clothing label.

She told Time magazine: “That’s the most flattering thing. The older I get the younger my customers get. I think it’s because I really understand women.”

The designer recently admitted she has no interest in making clothes for men or children, and is happy to focus on womenswear.

She said: “I am not interested in making children’s clothes. I want little girls to want to grow up to wear the clothes. I do not want to do men’s clothes. My mission in life, what I understand in life, is women. I wanted to be a certain kind of a woman. I became that kind of a woman.”
