Retail's Power Broker: Diane von Furstenberg

Along with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg--the designer behind the iconic wrap dress and successful brand--dreamed up Fashion's Night Out, which launched in 2009. Today, the Belgian-born entrepreneur and philanthropist is the president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Von Furstenberg began designing women's clothing in 1970, with just $30,000 in investment. Today, she runs one of the world's most iconic clothing brands. She's pictured at her 2012 runway show, donning Google glasses alongside Google co-founder Sergey Brin.
