Renowned fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg is bringing out a comic book in line with her new Wonder Woman collection. The DC comic authored by DvF, titled ‘Be the Wonder Woman you want to be - Featuring the Adventures of Diva, Viva and Fifa’ will accompany the launch of her holiday collection. The comic will be sold for $25 at DvF stores and online at dvf.com, along with a $50 T-shirt and a $230 tote, and will benefit the charity Vital Voices which supports women entrepreneurs.
Furstenberg has apparently always wanted to write a comic. She says:
“I am Diva, Viva and Fifa altogether, I am DVF,” von Furstenberg said. “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.”
