I apologize for directing you repeatedly to the Times, but really, of late, they've had some articles that are not to be missed! Some of you are probably fans of Diane von Furstenberg's clothing, and I know I've featured some of her pieces here in the past. But...for a while now, I've been looking out for one of her kernels of spoken wisdom to feature. And I thought it would be a nice follow up to yesterday's post about Lillian Bassman.
Some time ago, I caught an interview with DvF on NY1, and was delighted and intrigued by her candor. She told a story about being seated next to a male business executive on a flight in the 1970's, and his complete surprise at seeing a woman reading the Wall Street Journal. Well, times and trends have definitely sided with Ms. von Furstenberg...who was a pioneer in creating not only a new role for women at work, but a model for women in life.
I greatly enjoyed her honesty, humor, and practical yet memorable views in this article; which offers a great mix of business and life wisdom. I hope you'll enjoy it too.
