In other words, DVF is doing a kickass job and they want her to keep chugging along. "Diane has done an excellent job as CFDA president," Steven Kolb, CFDA chief creative officer, told the trade. "The time and resources she gives and the vision she has created is a huge benefit for our organization and industry."
