Girl Scouts of the USA Press Room
“Collaborating with Girl Scouts is a true honor for me, and an opportunity to allow girls and women to feel #InCharge,” said Diane von Furstenberg. “I’m thrilled to bring this vibrant print to life, featuring the iconic Girl Scout trefoil, and to donate a unique design to the premier leadership organization for girls. To empower a girl is to empower the woman she will become.”
The scarf and wristlet are available exclusively for purchase through Girl Scouts of the USA. To learn more about the collaboration and to purchase the items, visit girlscoutshop.com/DVF.
We're Girl Scouts of the USA
We're 2.5 million strong—more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
