Essay contest

Contest: Win a 5k Shopping Spree!

by Kate Franco on March 21, 2008 · 2 comments

You may have heard of designer Diane von Furstenberg (a.k.a DVF) — and by “may have heard of” I mean you definitely know her — this is the woman who brought you the iconic wrap dress, which has come to symbolize “female power and freedom to an entire generation by encouraging women to ‘feel like a woman, wear a dress.'”

DVF is legendary, and now she’s bringing you a contest.


March 8th was International Women’s Day, and in honor and support of that day, DVF has created a “Women You Love” contest. Prizes, you ask? A 5k Shopping Spree at the Flagship DVF store, a trip to NYC, PLUS 2 tickets to the Spring 2009 DVF fashion show (one for you, one for a friend)!

All you have to do is write an essay; an inspirational story about a fabulous, strong, intelligent woman who has nurtured or inspired you. Submit a photo with the story of a woman who has positively impacted your life.

You have until April 19th to enter, and all you have to do is click here to submit your essay. You can also check out the DVF Facebook Fan page, filled with news and information about DVF.

Checkout her fall 2008 lookbook, too — great for both work and play.
