The Tens

The new decade kicked off with exhibitions of Diane's life and work in Sao Paulo and Beijing, while the DVF brand continued to grow. It now offers four complete collections a year and a full range of accessories including shoes, handbags, small leather goods, scarves, eyewear, fine jewelry and luggage. In 2011 DVF d├ębuted a home collection encompassing tabletop, bedding and rugs, and the next year DVF collaborated with Gap on a GapKids collection that was so successful that the two brands teamed up again in 2013.

Diane also designed suites for Claridge's hotel in London, and continued to open flagship stores around the world, adding Boston, Dallas, Dubai, Istanbul and a second New York shop to the ever-growing roster. The DVF brand is now sold in 55 countries and has 98 shops worldwide.

In 2012 Diane was named the most powerful woman in fashion by Forbes, and partnered with Google to create a film shot exclusively through Google Glass during New York Fashion Week. In 2014, DVF launched a home fabric and trimmings collection with Kravet, as well as DVF sun and optical frames made for Google Glass.

The year also marked the 40th anniversary of the wrap dress. An exhibition, Journey of a Dress, was mounted in Los Angeles to celebrate the little dress that started it all, and DVF partnered with the Andy Warhol Foundation on a Pop Wrap collection. DVF is the subject of an upcoming E! docuseries, and in November 2014, Diane will release Journey of a Dress, a striking catalogue of the wrap dress exhibition, and her intimate memoir, The Woman I Wanted to Be.
