Diane von Fürstenberg and her granddaughter Talita von Fürstenberg are the cover stars of Town & Country’s March 2019 issue, on newsstands February 12th.
The two von Fürstenberg’s are coming together for T&C in anticipation of Talita’s first collection for the DVF brand called TVF for DVF, due out later this Spring. Inside the cover story, DVF opens up on being fearless, aging, and her next act which is to become an oracle. Talita gives readers a hint of what to expect from her debut collection plus shares how her life varies between NYC and being a student at Georgetown University.
This March 2019 cover marks DVF’s second Town & Country cover – her first in March 1972 with then-husband Prince Egon von Fürstenberg.
DVF on her next act: “I’ve been a designer, a success, a failure. I’ve seen it all. And now I want to use my power, my experiences, my knowledge, and my connections to help women all over the world become who they want to be. I want to be an oracle.”
Talita on her approach to her new fashion line, ‘TVF for DVF’: “I look at it this way. Your mom wore DVF, and maybe your grandmother wore DVF, but now I can bring something a little more fresh and youthful.”
DVF on how she was taught to be fearless as a child: “If I was afraid of the dark, she [her mother] would lock me in a dark closet and wait outside so I would learn there was nothing to be afraid of.”
Talita on family nicknames: “I call her DVF. She calls me TVF. It’s a family thing.”
DVF on aging: “I think of aging as an acquisition, not a loss.”
Talita on life as a student at Georgetown University compared to NYC: “I only wear sweatpants. I don’t think my friends have seen me in anything structured as blue jeans. …If you see me at school, it’s very different from how I am when I’m in New York. It’s as if I lead a double life.”
