From Diane von Furstenberg, the celebrated fashion designer and philanthropist, comes Own It: The Secret of Life—a collection of the words to live by. Following an A to Z format, von Furstenberg shares her accessible, empowering manifesto for turning problems into assets and enjoying personal growth at any age.


Own It is a must-have survival guide that you can come back to time and again for immediate inspiration from the heart and soul of the trailblazing business leader and creative genius that is DVF!” - Whitney Wolfe Herd, CEO and Founder of Bumble

Many books describe paths to success, but only Own It helps us to find our own. My friend Diane von Furstenberg gives us the biggest gift: faith in our uniqueness.” - Gloria Steinem, writer, activist and feminist organizer

Internationally renowned fashion designer and philanthropist Diane von Furstenberg shares her accessible, empowering manifesto. In an easy-to-navigate A-Z format, Own It is her blueprint for enjoying both personal and professional growth at any age. “The secret of life is one thing: own it. Own our imperfections. Own our vulnerability; it becomes our strength. Whatever the challenge is, own it. Owning it is the first step to everything.”

At this point in my life, I have realised that the secret to life—the good, the bad, the seemingly unsolvable—is first to own it. Whatever our challenge is, own it. We own our imperfections, they become our assets; we own our vulnerability, it becomes our strength. Words are tools. They create energy, define us, impact our lives and the paths we take. Words are the core of our power. They become our actions, our habits, our character, and our destiny.

Paperback. 168 pages. Published by Phaeton Press Inc, New York, 2021. Written by Diane von Furstenberg. 178 x 120 mm.
