Diane von Furstenberg is an eco-activist! She’s starring (sort of) in a short video aired on the Sundance Channel in support of the green High Line park project.
Not too fancy, not too complicated, the warm video tries to convince us we really need that High Line park, that a suspended green ribbon can actually be amazingly green and park-ish (you can even catch a distant glimpse of her most architectural DVF studios behind her). Off topic: I really love her unpretentious looks and simple talk. But would you fall for such a project? Is she convincing? Is it a real future for forgotten relics like this? (at least she doesn’t militate for building a loft industry on those rails!) (via)
