New York, NY (CNS) – Fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg is turning herself into a superhero by releasing a comic book coinciding with the launch of her first holiday collection.
DVF has written the comic book illustrated by artist Konstantin Kakanias. The story revolves around three female lead characters, who are wears her designs, making empowering choices.
She tells WWD, “I am Diva, Viva and Fifa altogether. I am DVF.”
“It’s not so much that I identify with each of them, though. The idea is that if you feel insecure, look at yourself in the mirror, and through the reflection remember to be the Wonder Woman you can be. That’s my message.”
The illustrated tome will also feature essay by women’s right advocate Gloria Steinem and Les Daniels about the original DC comics heroine Wonder Woman. It is expected to retail at $25 at her boutiques and on DVF.com.
Proceeds will benefit women’s organization Vital Voices.
