STICKING TO HER KNITTING: New York’s French Institute Alliance Française closed the last of its “Fashion Talks” on Monday night with a chat with Diane von Furstenberg. (Previous participants included Donna Karan and Catherine Malandrino.) Interviewed onstage by Pamela Goldin, curator of Paris’ Musée de la Mode et du Textile, von Furstenberg spoke about her career beginnings and trajectory. Of her current stint as president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, von Furstenberg noted she intends to get more involved with the fashion week calendar. “One of the things I want to do with fashion week is to make this difference between what is trade and what is consumer,” she said, “and maybe organize some consumer shows.” Meanwhile, asked whether she ever planned to design men’s wear, von Furstenberg answered with a resounding no. “And not for children either,” she continued. “Let them grow up.”
