Diane von Furstenberg started out with a suitcase full of jersey dresses and an idea of who she wanted to be - in her words, "the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn’t rely on a man to pay her bills." She has since become that woman and much more, establishing herself as a global brand and a major force in the fashion industry, all the while raising a family and maintaining "my children are my greatest creation."
In The Woman I Wanted to Be, von Furstenberg reflects on her extraordinary life - from childhood in Brussels to her days as a young, jet-set princess, to creating the dress that came to symbolize independence and power for an entire generation of women. With remarkable honesty and wisdom, von Furstenberg mines the rich territory of what it means to be a woman. She opens up about her family and career, overcoming cancer, building a global brand, and devoting herself to empowering other women, telling listeners, "I want every woman to know that she can be the woman she wants to be."

Little interesting material
I prefer books read by the author, so that's a boon. However there wasn't a lot of valuable advice here. Business advice 3/10, interesting social/historical anecdotes 2/10, endless egotism and name dropping. There are literally minutes straight where she's just reading a list of people who attended this or that event. Seems to me Diane is a nice enough person who had a lot of luck; she can't even figure out the cause of her own success.
