Diane von Furstenberg believes in the transformative value of women’s participation in society. In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th, DVF invites you to share the love with an inspirational story about a fabulous, strong, intelligent woman who has nurtured or inspired you. What woman has accentuated the spirit of camaraderie of women, mentored or encouraged you? Submit a photo with a detailed description or write a blog, with photos if you’d like, of a woman who has positively impacted your life. The winner will win a trip for them and a friend to NYC for a $5,000 shopping spree at Diane von Furstenberg’s flagship NYC store plus two tickets to the DVF Spring 2009 fashion show!
