TVF For DVF, The Women Behind Morning Network News, And The Female-Founded Tata Harper Skincare
Talita Von Furstenberg’s New Collection: TVF for DVF
By Chloe Cornell
Many high-end fashion companies are finding ways to expand their brand to the younger generation. Dianne Von Furstenberg employed her own 19 year old granddaughter Talita to design her own line under the DVF brand called TVF for DVF. After attending her grandmother’s shows and watching her design by her side all her life, Talita was well fit for the task. She exposed DVF to a younger, more millennial audience through Instagram, younger clothing, and through a less-expensive price point.
TVF launched her first collection of clothing on April 24th, including 23 pieces of clothing aligning with Talita’s youthful and sophisticated wardrobe. Her collection was made up of day-time dresses in floral prints and pastel shades, button-front tops with blouson sleeves, crop tops, and casual mini skirts that are elegant enough for a formal party and casual enough for jeans. When asked about her intention with designing the first collection of TVF for DVF, Talita said “that’s really what I wanted to get with TVF: simplicity, beauty, and something you can feel really confident in.” Keeping Talita’s vision for the line was vital. In fact, Dianne Von Furstenberg was not allowed to see the clothes until they were produced. According to Talita, she wanted to keep the two brands separate because she would’ve been too influenced by her grandmother’s opinion, and she wanted to keep this line true to her own style.
The premiere TVF for DVF capsule collection is the first of many biannual Spring and Fall TVF for DVF collections to come, so if you didn’t get your hands on this first collection, her second will be released sometime in the Fall!
