Diane von Furstenberg Net Worth: Diane von Furstenberg is an American fashion designer who has a net worth of $1.2 billion dollars. Born in Brussels, Belgium, in 1946, as Diane Simone Michelle Halfin, Diane von Furstenberg grew up in a Jewish family. Her mother survived life in the Auschwitz concentration camp, getting out just months before von Furstenberg's birth. She attended the University of Geneva for economics before moving to Paris to work in the fashion photography industry. Soon after, she packed her bags for Italy and began working for a textile manufacturer and creating her first dress. In 1970, von Furstenberg secured her first investment and began creating her own fashion line. She is famous for the jersey wrap dress, which debuted four years later, and is now considered iconic with a home at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The wrap dress launched von Furstenberg's career, and she was able to wrestle the cover of "Newsweek" from presidential hopeful Gerald Ford in 1976. Ten years later, she developed her own publishing company and several other businesses, but re-launched the wrap dress in 1997. She is the author of "Diane: A Signature Life", has a star on the Fashion Walk of Fame, and has had her clothes worn by dozens of high-profile women, including Michelle Obama, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Jessica Alba, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Von Furstenberg is an active philanthropist who directs The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation, which helps organizations that work to improve education, human rights, health and the environment. She is the founder of the DVF Awards, given annually to outstanding women in charity. Von Furstenberg has been married several times, first to Prince Egon of Furstenberg in 1969. They had two children together and she claimed the title of Her Serene Highness Princess Diane of Furstenberg. She re-married in 2001, getting hitched to on-again, off-again partner Barry Diller. Von Furstenberg has four grandchildren.
