DVF DEPARTURE: Alixe Boyer, Diane von Furstenberg’s executive vice president of global image, is leaving the company this Friday. Boyer joined von Furstenberg in 2007, overseeing areas such as public relations and special events and working with the executive team on media buys, as well as art directors and the creative team. Prior to that, she had senior marketing and communications stints at Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren. “Alixe joined our company as we were embarking on a new and exciting time for the DVF brand…international expansion, the launch of new products and unifying the brand,” von Furstenberg said. “She has been a tremendous asset. I wish her all the best in her next journey.” Boyer called her time at the company “invaluable,” and working with the designer “a privilege.” “While it has been a great three years, it is time to pursue new challenges and opportunities,” she said.
