Last Thursday night at her store in New York’s Meatpacking District, the fashionista had this to say:

“Everyone here better be a Democrat; no Republicans!”

She apparently then left to go watch President Obama’s snoozer of a DNC speech.

How gauche.

Poor Diane must’ve sewed her brain shut by mistake. Despite what the lapdog media and well-known Julias would have people believe, conservative and Republican women do exist, and they have a voice. Conservative women (and the men who love them) are using their voices now to hit back at Von Fürstenburg:

It eventually occurred to Von Fürstenburg that her remarks may have wound up alienating half of her customer base, and she tried to walk back her statement:

Too little, too late. We’re not buying what she’s selling. She’d better get used to that.

  • Julie

    Personally I was suprised to see so many Republican women shopped there before she said this. DVF is pretty tacky.

    • Nell

      The stuff she peddles is “crap on hangers”. The Occupy Wall Street crowd are the only ones who should wear or use her rags – it befits them.

    • Jay Stevens

      I am constantly amazed at the number of people who are willing to alienate one half (or better) of their potential market.

  • WhoMeToo

    @NichelodeonTV, check! @DVF, check! NEXT?!!!!

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      @BarackObama is next.

      • WhoMeToo

        Good one! But that one for me is a given.

  • grais

    I hadn’t realized she was still alive.

    • SineWaveII

      Are you sure she is? I think I saw her stumbling through an episode of “The Walking Dead”

      • grais

        I guess being married to a gay guy will do that to a woman.

  • grais

    She didn’t build that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Boris-Melton/100002447423313 Boris Melton

      Probibily even had the kids in SE Asia build that! Love that at least she’s in NYC and has to deal with those tax rates. HA HA

    • J.N. Ashby

      Exactly. She married into that.

  • brewers_rule

    Yet another example of Andrew Wilkow’s quote reigning true: “The loudest voices for tolerance are the most intolerant people.”

  • disappearing moderate

    DVF doesn’t want any ill gotten capitalist cash from greedy Republicans. As a caring, compassionate dem, she really should just give her rags away.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Well she’s kind of right, most Republicans work for a living and can’t afford her high-tone Limousine Liberal fashion. She IS the One Percent.

    • Cyborg0012

      Thanks for making me smile.

  • robgc11

    wish granted

    • TitzyFritzensimmons

      Me too! Though I didn’t think her dresses were anything special forty years ago, anyway.

  • RIChris

    I noticed she waited until she’d taken their money for 50 plus years before saying that. Brave.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Heh heh, “Meatpacking District.”

  • mwill

    who’s the old hag in those pictures?

  • http://twitter.com/lazypadawan lazypadawan

    I resolved to start boycotting her stuff when she supported Roman Polanski a few years ago. Thanks for giving me two reasons to stay away from your overpriced shiz, Diane!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1480612587 Corrie Seames Caldwell

      Roman Polanski? Would this be the same Roman Polanski that didn’t “rape-rape” a 13 year old girl who he gave drugs and alcohol to and then forced her into anal sex?

      • ked5

        is there another? (iow: yes – THAT roman polanski)

  • Mary Hansen

    No need to worry. I will be dropping her line from my store.

    • Cyborg0012

      Thank you so much. Your push back means something.

  • Pete Futz

    Hells Bells…let even boycott the knock offs!! lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/madelyn.martine Madelyn Martine

    Hope her “cough,cough” designs turn to rags on the rack. How pathetic to then claim she “loves and RESPECTS all Americans.” Repubs have more brains than to fall for that, Diane.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

    liberals are activists until it hits them in their pocketbooks, then they turn into the capitalists they claim to despise

    • nc

      Right-o. Money makes the world go ’round.

  • RaggedyAnn46

    The cotton gown I’m wearing looks more stylish than what that old hag is wearing in those photos. Is that her stuff? No worries from this raggedy gal!

  • weRbroke

    What a dumb woman, she just sauntered her wrinkly rich a$$ out there and stepped on her right teat.
    She better hope that the left one can recover for the loss.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1003376721 Sheldon Cooper

    Twitchy needs to have a offshoot page called “libcott” with a running list of companies to boycott. A list of CNN/MSNBC advertisers would be a good start.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mickey.byrd.12 Mickey Byrd

    I hate to ask this but… Are the Republicans the only ones with attractive women? Can you imagine having to look at this woman every day at breakfast?

    And she actually sells that trash she is wearing? Good luck with that!

    • http://www.facebook.com/mack.arlington Mack Arlington

      You’re not kidding!! The lineup at the DNC made me wonder, is that a qualification? Manly/unattractive women? The RNC women were classy, well-spoken, and attractive. Sorry if that sounds chauvenistic, but it’s true.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        The RNC women (like me) have pride, they love, they laugh, they generally don’t surround themselves with negative people to reduce stress, have spirituality, and they are happy with who they are inside and out. And it shows.

  • gator

    She just lost had a oops moment and tried to make up for it at the end. Her cpa must have called and informed her that she probably just lost more than 2/3rds of her customer base.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Boris-Melton/100002447423313 Boris Melton

    What a loser dingdong (DvF). Her only customers WERE probibily only Republicans. The left-wingers probibily find her passe. … Soon she’ll be EBT-rapping.

    Diane, senile much?

  • http://twitter.com/BLeFonque Buckshot LeFonque

        YES!! 2 angry old hags. That nasty hatred really leads to ugliness (inside & out) … watch out olivia wilde you’re next

  • Laurie

    I will not buy any of her clothes from my local thrift shop.

  • ked5

    ah – reality bites.

  • nc

    Oh yeah, DVF, your little apology tweet makes up for everything. Forgive and forget. Kiss kiss.

    Bless your heart.

    • Cyborg0012

      LOL… yeah bless her little heart. -With all the Southern snark included.

  • Postbackxp

    The sad part is the Dems want stop till we have a total civil war.

    I never thought it could happen I’m not sure anymore. Every day
    they keep pushing trying to make conservatives into 2nd class
    citzens.

    This is as bad as saying blacks can’t eat at the counter or ride the
    front of the bus and they are to stupid to even see it.

    Here’s a designer label for her it’s from the Limousine Liberal line, it fits your leather skin tight, keeps you from entertaining rational thoughts, and best of all is made at one of the many sweat shops overseas owned by prominent liberal leaders and tycoons. You will get used to the smell of hypocrisy and shame.

  • agoodeye

    I am outraged by her statement and also posted on twitter. Now that I’ve thought about it I think all of us who own anything by @DVF should set it on fire, take a pic and send it to her via twitter.

  • Right Wired

    Lucky for her, the Wicked Witch of the West is a lib.

  • Glitter

    What a dunce to say such a thing. And to top that off, she looks like a ghoul.

    Alienating half of your potential customers sounds like Newsweek’s business model for bankruptcy.

  • chocolateheart

    Diane Von Furstenberg’s clothes are really UGLY and OVER PRICED anyway. Who would want to buy her stuff? LOL

  • v.l.

    And this is the country Obama’s building!

  • tikiamarie

    I wouldn’t buy her ugly overpriced dresses even if I had the money!

  • tjp77

    Haahaha… this woman is actually, certifiably insane. I knew her son Alex very casually many years ago, and I remember meeting her a few times. She was a lunatic even then.

    She lives in a giant glass igloo on top of her store in the Meatpacking District (not making that up) and tried to get the city to pass an ordinance forcing the surrounding buildings to keep their shades closed at all times in order to protect her privacy (or something equally insane along those lines). She was unsuccessful in that attempt.

    The really funny thing is that her whole family is just ridiculously wealthy, with the kind of money that you know is kept hidden away in offshore tax shelters around the world. Her son Alex is the head of two opportunistic investment firms, Arrow Capital Management and Ranger Global Advisors, and has a background in arbitrage trading… not exactly a social-justice bleeding heart industry, and exactly the kind of person Obama loves to demonize.

    • redheadgrl

      *Gasp* The horror! Are you sure he hasn’t been disowned?

  • Garth Haycock

    This woman – whoever she is – is going to learn a lesson about how the free market works. When she is struggling to meet her debts because her sales are low, she’ll have nobody but herself to blame. And it will be great to hear about her business going under.

  • Jim Wafwot

    DVF: “I hate you evil GOP bastards!”
    Us: “No money for you!”
    DVF: “No wait, I love your cash! Just kidding.”

    How pathetically sad.

    Sure is ugly,guess money can’t buy everything

    Will not purchase anything of hers….ever….!

    She’s a fashion queen? The outfit she is wearing looks like it came out of my great Grandma’s closet.

  • TocksNedlog

    Personally, I love it when Democrats patronize my business!
    For every dollar they spend with me, that’s one less dollar they have to send to Obama’s re-election campaign.

    The left’s bigotry oozes out with ease and lack of self-awareness. It is the conciliatory “love and respect” for Republican tweet that seems artificial and forced.

    The last time I wore “her” it was a wrap dress in 1972. Her styles haven’t changed at all.

    So this means she only wants OWS types shop(lifting) at her store? :)

  • Justice Thinks

    Does my religion matter or just my political persuasion? Does
    this mean she does not want any Jews or Christians either? My friend is a
    Jewish Republican the other is a Christian Democrat. Does that mean
    the Jewish person can’t go in her store but the Christian can? Wow!
    What happened to a tolerant America? Can one be sued for that?
    What
    happened to FREEDOM of choice? Think of who in the world has taken
    freedoms away from people and what the outcomes were? Today no
    Republicans welcome tomorrow no…….

    Considering the rumor that the GOP is full of rich people, it wouldn’t make sense that she’d make such a statement unless she wanted to shoot herself in the foot. Maybe she was just not thinking, which is rampid on the Left. I guess that’s why she tried to go back on what she said when she actually thought about it. Too bad, Diane, what has been said cannot be unsaid. I’m kind of ashamed to almost share a name with her. >_<
