Diane von Fürstenberg got candid about her struggles amid the coronavirus pandemic in a lengthy social media post.

The fashion designer, 73, shared a photo of a recent New York Times report revealing her financial struggles.

Despite reportedly laying off 75 per cent of the company’s 400-person staff and closing 18 of its 19 retail stores in recent months, Fürstenberg was full of hope in her Instagram post.

“In reference to the New York Times article I would like to clarify a few things and not be misunderstood. We intend to pay all our employees in full, including severance. (I also want to say we have taken no government funds throughout). As everybody I have had painful months trying to untangle huge difficulties. I had to close many stores and shrink operations, but DVF will go on. We will continue to design and deliver the global community of Women InCharge, our timeless fashion , our exclusive prints and our honest voice. I want to thank my faithful consumers and partners that have supported me for so long… I will not disappoint you. Owning my vulnerability through these hard times and learning from it will make me and my brand stronger. Thank you… love you all. Diane” – @therealdvf
