As if she were some modern day Gen Z Game of Thrones character, Talita von Furstenberg is a woman with many titles. The 20 year-old Princess Talita Natasha von Furstenberg is a model, Georgetown University student, socialite, granddaughter of fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and Prince Egon von Furstenberg, and now, she’s officially a fashion designer too.
Being born into the fashion-focused von Furstenberg clan meant the young Talita always had an innate love for fashion design. Now, the American-German Princess has officially launched her first capsule collection for the Diane von Furstenberg label, which was founded and directed by her grandmother.

TVF had always been a muse to DVF, and consistently active in the family’s design studios. Her infatuation with fashion led her to intern at Teen Vogue (and, of course, to be featured in their pages). She then also modelled at Milan Fashion Week in 2017. Now tackling the world of fashion design, Talita went shuffling through the DVF archives. For her capsule collection, she wanted to adapt her grandmother’s iconic heritage prints and create for the future, speaking more to a younger and contemporary demographic. The result is a 23-piece collection that is cheerfully bright and whimsical. Youthful, feminine, and relaxed silhouettes are the basis for TVF’s unique spring pastel prints, romantic tiers, and soft colour palettes. See some of the looks below:
Talita created her collection to focus on her love of nature, and the prints feature a fun miscellany of natural elements. She says, “prints really tell a story and all my prints are inspired by nature. Whether it be directly with a delicate floral or indirectly with hearts that move like waves of wind across the fabric; it all comes back to nature.”
As a fashion model as well as designer, Talita has personally showed how her pieces can be worn on her Instagram account – attracting more younger customers to the brand.
Taking a page from Diane von Furstenberg’s book, Talita strives to intertwine a career in fashion with philanthropy. As an International Relations student at Georgetown University, Talita is determined not only to be a member of the fashion community, but to be a valuable social activist too.
In Diane von Furstenberg’s words: “Talita has always been clear about wanting to follow my path but she is very much her own person with her own style. It is a joy to teach her all I know as she is more disciplined than I am”.
