Top fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg of the iconic wrap dress came to the Philippines in February and appeared smitten by the country as she posted instagram shots and even wrote a memoir of her experience in the place she calls, “paradise.”
“Today is my husband’s birthday, our anniversary and we are in paradise! Love from the Philippines. Diane,” went Von Furstenberg’s caption on her post of a sea, mountain and sky view from her island holiday in Palawan, south of Manila.
The posts sent a flurry of excitement in the country’s fashion circles as outpourings of welcomes, thank yous and invitations to visit other Philippine spots flooded the comments.
Von Furstenberg left America with her husband Barry Diller, just before Fashion Week, to celebrate in the southern islands of Palawan, El Nido and Coron which she referred to in her DVF site’s Love Diane section as “spectacular.”
She wrote about what she appreciated most about her holiday, “The rich vegetation of palms and bamboos, the sculpted rock formations and the most elegant simple villages, all a powerful reminder that nothing beats the beauty of nature. Then there is the underwater world and its splendor, the coral reefs and the multi color fishes… sure to inspire yet another collection in the future.”
Von Furstenberg posted her last instagram shot of the Philippines on February 6th, a snapshot of a bougainvillea plant against an azure sky over the country.
Von Furstenberg was recently touted by the Philippine fashion community after picking Filipina-American Brittany Hampton to be the first global brand ambassador for her DVF brand.
