DVF’s New Wingman
After a memorable fortieth anniversary show last weekend, it seems Diane von Furstenberg only gets better with age. The gold, the music, the confetti! But everyone needs a right-hand man. To assist with her ever-expanding empire, the designer has hired Michael Herz as artistic director—a brand-new role at DVF. Herz has held past positions at Bally, Iceberg, Guy Laroche, and Falke, among others, and will ensure all products remain true to the brand, reports WWD. Herz also curated Von Furstenberg’s Journey of a Dress exhibit in Los Angeles last month, so it’s safe to say he’s an expert on all things DVF.
