Diane von Furstenberg, with whom I worked directly, had a specific woman in mind. “Make her independent, powerful, sexy, with a big ass.”
Many drawings later, she was satisfied. She insisted on keeping all the drawings I did which is unheard of, actually. Clients buy the rights to use a drawing, not the actual drawing. For the actual artwork that’s a separate price. But she told my agent she always keeps the originals (really? No one else does or they negotiate that up front) and was actually quite nasty.
I was discouraged, as I had thought she was a brilliant designer and businesswoman and if you read her tweets, an especially warm and loving person. Shattered illusions. Lost drawings. There’s more, but I’ll save it for another time. Onward!
