Diane von Furstenberg Designs Girl Scout Line
Diane von Furstenberg, renowned fashion designer and philanthropist has designed a limited-edition Girl Scout silk scarf and wristlet. In celebration of International Women’s Day and Girl Scout Week the two icons have united to champion female ambition in order to prepare today’s girls to become the women they want to be.
“Collaborating with Girl Scouts is a true honor for me, and an opportunity to allow girls and women to feel #InCharge,” said Diane von Furstenberg. “I’m thrilled to bring this vibrant print to life, featuring the iconic Girl Scout trefoil, and to donate a unique design to the premier leadership organization for girls. To empower a girl is to empower the woman she will become.”
Girl Scouts has a long history of collaborating with fashion designers. To name a few, Mainbocher, a popular haute couture American label in the 1950s, designed a loose-fitting dress uniform. Bill Blass, a member of the Fashion Hall of Fame, designed the 1980s Girl Scout look. And New York-based hat designer Miss Emmé created the adjustable green berets. Accessories have always been a big part of official Girl Scout looks says GSUSA.
“Working with a woman of Diane’s prestige to create these pieces has been such a privilege,” GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo said
The scarf and wristlet are available exclusively for purchase through Girl Scouts of the USA. To learn more about the collaboration and to purchase the items, visit girlscoutshop.com/DVF.
