Diane von Furstenberg on Balancing Work and Home Life as a Mother


Image: WENN

Diane von Furstenberg has built her career on understanding women and living her life as an example that it is possible to have an illustrious career and still maintain that home/work balance. Von Furstenberg once told Victoria Beckham she never felt guilty being a working mother and it is a philosophy and mentality that the designer has infused into the office culture. 

In an interview with Business of Fashion, DVF talks about how she accommodates working mothers at her business. “We have a flexible culture,” she said. “Some of the women who work for me are moms who have flexibility, so they might work from home on Fridays or come in and leave at different times based on their schedule.” Indeed, there are plenty of corporate environments that snub women due to their tendency to prioritize family commitments. As Forbes contributor Kathy Caprino writes, “Women are pushed aside regularly when they make their family priorities known or demand time off after having a child (and don’t kid yourself – this is a form discrimination to be sidelined for prioritizing time off for child bearing).” As a woman and a mother, DVF clearly understands the importance of having an enriching life in both the workplace and the home. While traditional corporate environments might marginalize women for their decision to be involved with their families, DVF allows women to work around it. 

But still, the designer says she let it be known to her children that her job was still an important aspect of her life. “Very early on, I explained it to them — they went to school, I went to work. We each had our own obligations, our responsibilities and when we met at night, we would exchange our experiences.”

Charlize Theron Wins Over Our Forums on UK ELLE’s June 2015 Cover (Forum Buzz)

You’re already seeing her at your local newsstand covering W magazines May issue and now Charlize Theron is plastered on U.K. ELLE. After W unfortunately missed the mark, ELLE successfully impresses with its surprisingly good June 2015 cover. The Mad Max: Fury Road actress sat for Bjarne Jonasson looking radiant and effortless (as per usual), sporting a purple jacket from Bottega Veneta.

“It’s beautiful. Charlize is Charlize and the purple is very summerish somehow,” Srdjan announced the minute the cover surfaced.

“Beautiful! It’s the first time ELLE stunned me after a long time. Charlize is undeniably beautiful! The color scheme makes the cover perfect for summer albeit the dead background,” approved MON soon after.

In agreement was ash92: “The newsstand cover is beautiful. I love that the purple pops out a little and the pastel masthead.”

“Now this is how you do the cover. Stunning, and she is unexpected for ELLE,” Miss Dalloway hailed, echoing everyone’s sentiments.

Emmanuelle also shared a positive attitude. “I like it too! The composition is quite simple, and this clean style is very elegant. I even like the purple jacket.”

“Very nice cover. For once,” admired gossiping.

The magazine has certainly won over our forum members. “Beautiful; but I’m very surprised she landed the cover of such a youth-centric edition of ELLE, personally. Also Rosie is in the movie, surprised they didn’t get her on the cover again!” wondered honeycombchild.

Lucky FABB Conference Postponed Following Eva Chen Announcement

The drama over at Lucky continues. Last week, editor-in-chief Eva Chen announced that she was transitioning from the publication and now some more disappointing news from the shopping title. The biannual Lucky FABB conference has been canceled, a mere week before it was set to go down in New York City.

Lucky decided to postpone the event after Eva Chen revealed that she would be stepping down as editor-in-chief, sending an email informing ticket holders of the changes on April 30. “We are prioritizing what is best for the brand and have made the decision to postpone the upcoming Lucky Fabb conference,” the email states

Some speculate that low ticket sales may have also been a factor. A source sent us an email targeting past Lucky FABB attendees sent on April 28, just over a week before the conference, offering a 30% discount off the ticket price. The email also promised 50% off for referring a friend. But perhaps that was simply a special promotion for people who attended the conference before, not reflective of ticket sales.

The event, which cost between $250 and $600, was to feature such industry luminaries as Emily Weiss and keynote speaker Alexa Chung. Lucky assured ticket holders that they will be reimbursed and that they are planning to reschedule the event. Of course, this does little to appease the out-of-state attendees who booked plane tickets and hotels in order to attend the affair.

WATCH: See by Chloé Launches Its Fall 2015 Campaign with Women Cast from the Streets of Europe

See by Chloé is relaunching and to celebrate, the brand has rolled out a new Fall 2015 campaign video. The label traversed European cities – Paris, Copenhagen, London, Brussels, Berlin and Stockholm – to find a group of 20 women who embody the See by Chloé girl. 

In the video, each woman is asked to describe herself in one word. The women identify as energetic, natural, sentimental, curious, artistic, sarcastic, diverse (although only one woman in the entire video appears to be nonwhite and all look pretty slim) and more. All seem to represent creative director Clare Waight Keller’s vision of the See by Chloé woman: she’s wide-eyed with little fuss about her, but still effortlessly stylish and feminine. This is the first See by Chloé collection created under Keller, who enlisted Matteo Montanari to shoot portraits of each woman.

Watch the ladies describe themselves above and get a glimpse of the new See by Chloé.
