The CFDA's partnered with W Hotels to create a limited edition calendar for 2009. They're aiming to inspire you with their twelve designer months. Marcus Wainwright of Rag & Bone, Sue Stemp and of course CFDA President Diane Von Furstenberg each snagged their own months. While the calendar itself resembles a sketchbook, complete with a pencil and blank pages in back, the designers picked images that move them to put on their pages instead of their own sketches. All of proceeds from the $15 calendar go toward the CFDA and helping fledgling American designers, who could really use any help right now, and Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. You can buy it at any W Hotel or on their site. So you have a gift, an inside look into designers' creative process, the perfect calendar on which to schedule fashion week madness. And, it's all for a good cause.

Diane von Furstenberg and Hubby Barry Diller Donated a Cool $20 Million to NYC's High Line Park
Diane von Furstenberg is a fairy godmother of sorts in fashion, championing new and established designers alike as the beloved president of the CFDA. She, along with husband Barry Diller, is also working some fairy magic in New York City. The High Line park, which opened in 2009, has been a magnet for tourists and city dwellers alike. It runs along the city's west side through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea, and has been credited with rejuvenating restaurants and retail in the area. Plus, it's just a really cool park. But the last half mile has remained unfinished, until now, thanks to the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation.
