DVF fans rejoice! The woman who has made her iconic wrap dress a staple in womens closets around the globe, will soon be offering a complete cosmetics and skin care line through ID Beauty. The designer will start the launch with a new fragrance she has been working on for the past few years with Chantal Roos, former president of YSL Beaute. The fragrance is rumored to debut as early as late 2010.
“I have always been interested in the intimacy of the relationship between beauty products and women,” the designers explains to WWD.com recently. “When you have such an intimate relationship with women, there is no way that you can do it more than with the beauty business.” Besides designing her clothing lines, launching a limited edition camera last month, designing hotel suites for Claridges, she is also a devoted grandmother. Where does this woman find the time?!
During the ’70′s the designer had a scent, Tatiana, as well as a makeup line, before selling both businesses in 1983. There is no word yet on if the products will be sold in Canada, but we’re sure make-up connoisseurs won’t mind paying the shipping and handling fees when the line is launched. If the success of von Furstenberg among fashion fans is any indication, her new beauty venture is sure to be a hit!
