Perusing through several online magazines and social media outlets in the morning is one of my favorite daily routines. Today, I came across this Q&A with iconic Fashion Designer, Dian von Furstenberg (famous for her wrap dresses), discusses comfy hotel rooms, design inspirations, and aging gracefully with TIME staff writer, William Lee Adams (London).
