“I didn’t always know what I wanted to do, but I always knew the kind of woman I wanted to be.” – Diane Von Furstenberg
“House of DVF’s real strength, though, comes from the level of von Furstenberg’s involvement; she is genuinely interested in the development of these young women, and also approaches them with a refreshing bluntness.” – Hollywood Reporter

TORONTO (October 23, 2014) – She created the iconic wrap dress and never looked back. In the prestigious world of global fashion Diane von Furstenberg and her eponymous fashion brand DVF are widely considered symbols of independence, grace, and fearlessness. Now viewers can catch every pressure-filled and triumphant moment that the cutthroat world of fashion has to offer in the all-new series HOUSE OF DVF, beginning Sunday, Nov. 2 at 10 p.m. ET exclusively on E!. The new series follows the fashion icon as she mentors eight hard-working contestants seeking to take their fashion careers to the next level as they compete for the glamorous and highly-coveted position of DVF Global Brand Ambassador, with one of fashion’s most-lauded labels.
Handpicked by von Furstenberg herself, the HOUSE OF DVF contestants are fiercely determined to impress, as they are tasked with working in different areas of the design maven’s massive empire, based out of the DVF offices in Manhattan’s Meatpacking district. From planning a press lunch, to working at the DVF Spring 2015 show during Fashion Week, the women are expected to execute every duty perfectly, although things don’t always go as planned. The stakes are high as tempers are tested, nerves are frayed, and friendships built and destroyed at every turn. With the help of von Furstenberg’s right hand women, Jessica Joffe (DVF Style Editor) and Stefani Greenfield (DVF SVP of Merchandising), the candidates are guided through the tough days and nights required to really “make it” in the fierce and competitive world of fashion.
In the premiere episode, entitled “Fashion 101”, eight ambitious fashionistas vie for their dream job working for Diane von Furstenberg, as she launches the search for a Global Brand Ambassador. Their first task is to represent DVF at the 5th Annual DVF Awards at the United Nations.
