Claridge’s, in London’s Mayfair neighborhood, announced that this year its annual Christmas Tree will be designed by Diane von Furstenberg. Furstenberg will unveil her creation, "The Tree of Love," in the hotel lobby on the morning of Tuesday November 27, 2018.

Claridge’s Christmas Tree has long been a seasonal London landmark, and symbolizes the start of the festive season in the capital. This is the ninth year Claridge’s has invited a distinguished guest to reinterpret the tree in their own distinctive style. 

Diane von Furstenberg is a fashion designer, philanthropist and founder and chairman of the company that bears her name. In 1974, she created the iconic wrap dress, which became a symbol of power and independence for women all over the world and grew into a global brand. In 2010, she established the DVF Awards to honor extraordinary women. She is Chairwoman of the CFDA and serves on the boards of Vital Voices, the Statue of Liberty–Ellis Island Foundation, The Shed, and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Her memoir, The Woman I Wanted To Be, was published in 2014 and has been translated into six languages. In 2015, she was named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People. 

Claridge’s is part of Maybourne Hotel Group. It features the cuisine of Michelin-starred Fera.
