House of DVF debuts on E! tonight in the UK as Diane von Furstenberg mentors a new generation of hard-working young women ready to take their careers to the next level at DVF.
Eight young women will compete for the coveted brand ambassador position at DVF. Each of the women has been hand-picked by Diane herself and they must work in different areas of her empire in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.
“With ‘House of DVF,’ I am able to open the doors of my company and show the endless possibilities young girls can find in fashion,” says Diane von Furstenberg.
Tasks in the series range from planning a press lunch to working at the DVF Spring 2015 show during Fashion Week.
Jessica Joffe (DVF’s Style Editor) and Stefani Greenfield (DVF’s Creative Brand Director) guide the candidates through the tough days and nights. Yet Diane herself is there at all times, committed to and passionate about selecting the right young woman for the job. She observes, evaluates and empowers them to open up about their lives and dreams in one-on-one sessions and does not mince words when she feels they haven’t presented themselves as a member of the DVF team should.
The ambassador candidates are:
Codi Critchfield, a sensitive 22-year-old fashion photographer from Utah
Lenore Genovese, a cheerful, 23-year-old New York native and FIT student
Brittany Hampton, a 23-year-old fashion stylist from San Francisco who seems wise beyond her years
Kier Mellour, a 24-year-old fashion blogger who’s ready to take charge
Abigail Petit-Frere, a 22-year-old wardrobe stylist from Florida who’s confident in her ability to secure her dream job
Amanda Schauer, a 21-year-old student studying Fashion Design & Merchandising at Drexel University
Tiffani Warkenthein, a 19-year-old South Bronx native is the youngest of the group and incredibly receptive to learning anything and everything
Jinna Yang, a 25-year-old stylist and blogger who’s just as task oriented when it comes to working hard as she is when it comes to blowing off steam
