Diane von Furstenberg : Woman in Charge

Join us for the Brussels premiere of the documentary film “Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge” in presence of DVF and director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

Philippe and Greta Halfin invite TheMerode’s members to the Brussels premiere for “Diane Von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge.”

An unprecedented look at the non-stop life of a cultural luminary. At a time when gender equality and women’s issues are at the forefront, Diane von Furstenberg’s life exemplifies empowerment, resilience, entrepreneurship, and style. She is an inspiration to women with her unapologetic demeanor. Diane never saw herself as a victim of sexism; rather, she embraced her femininity in a strong and profound way, forging a path for her daughter and the next generation of women to follow.

As she approaches the eve of her retrospective exhibition, marking a 50-year distinguished career, Diane von Furstenberg contemplates her pioneering path in a male-dominated realm to erect a multi-million-dollar fashion empire - as an early visionary, and influencer, she challenged the status quo with the bold inquiry, "Why can’t a woman do what a man does?"

With resolute determination, she faced various challenges – she was a single woman balancing a career, raising two children, and bravely confronting cancer. These hurdles didn’t stop her; instead, she embraced them and they fueled her mission to inspire women everywhere to pursue their lives with equal passion and purpose and design their own lives. DVF was born to be a woman in charge.  And, she was born to inspire other women to take charge of their lives.

Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to discover “Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge” in premiere at TheMerode, followed by a Q&A with Diane von Furstenberg and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Trish Dalton, “Diane Von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge” is produced by Fabiola Beracasa Beckman, Tracy Aftergood, Sean Stuart, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Trish Dalton. A Sutter Road Picture Company and Particle Projects/Fabiola Beracasa Beckman Media production.

 “Diane Von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge” will have its world premiere as the opening night selection at the 2024 Tribeca Festival before premiering on June 25th on Disney+.
