Fashion maven Diane von Furstenberg recently launched a line of Wonder Woman-inspired fashions and accessories at her signature Manhattan store. DC Comics Prez. Paul Levitz was among those in attendance at that kick-off party and gave his impressions of the event on Newsarama’s blog, along with revealing that DC brand manager Cheryl Rubin helped spearhead the project.

The DVF holiday fashion line also includes a matching comic book written by Furstenberg and illustrated by avant-garde artist Konstantin Kakanias. Called BE THE WONDER WOMAN YOU CAN BE, the $25 tabloid-size book features some classic Wondy material, along with the stories of modern three woman, Diva, Viva, & Fifa (DVF, get it?), who become empowered after seeing Wonder Woman in their own reflections. Or something. Topless Robot has a few scans and plenty of snark.

All sales of the comic, and the line’s complementary Wonder Woman T-shirt and tote bag benefit Vital Voices, a woman’s rights organization, which is pretty nifty.

  1. Kudos for the charity aspect, but my god that art is awful. it looks like what an outsider’s idea of typical comic book art would look like.

  2. For a charity event that utilizes Wonder Woman in a TRULY inspiring way…
    AND is recognized officially by the Mayor of a major national city…
    AND gives 100% of the money to domestic violence charities and a women’s crisis line…
    AND features over 200 pieces of artwork from some of the top comic and animation artists in the business…
    AND which was criminally underrepresented by the comics press community…

    Please visit http://www.Wonder WomanMuseum.com to see WONDER WOMAN DAY, happening October 26 (this Sunday) in Portland, OR and Flemington, New Jersey.
