Earlier this week, I spent the day stationed at one particular spot in the meatpacking district for a photo shoot with work. Luckily for me, this spot was directly outside of one of Diane von Furstenberg’s many offices on the street, and just before I left for the day, I caught a rare sighting of the designer herself. She walked out, smiled with indescribable humility and class, and in an instant she was gone. This, of course, got me thinking about all the wonder that the pattern master has and is still providing for the industry. This month, the designer teamed up with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute as well as Diet Coke for the fifth year in a row to both kick off NY Fashion Week and support the Heart Truth campaign. Minka Kelly was the highlight of the Heart Truth fashion show in a custom sequin red DVF gown, and DVF also created a line of special edition Diet Coke bottles to be sold in stores and online throughout the month. Although the bottles don’t actually contain any Diet Coke, if you’re a DVF fan, these adorable collectors items are a must have.

Moral of the story… love Diane.
