Called the High Priestess of Fashion, Diana Vreeland (1903 1989) was an American original whose impact on fashion and style was legendary. Beginning in 1936, when she became a fashion editor at "Harper's Bazaar," Vreeland established herself as a controversial visionary with an astonishing ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, personalities, and photographers. She was a memorable writer with a vivid personality and a talent for coining aphorisms. "Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel "chronicles 50 years of international fashion and Vreeland's rich life. With more than 350 illustrations, including original magazine spreads and many famous photographs, this intensely visual book shows fashion as it was being invented, and how Vreeland shaped American taste through her superb vision.
Praise for "Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel:
" Before there was Daphne Guinness, before there was Lady Gaga, there was the original style setter. A new book takes a look at the career and influence of the woman who made fashion modern. "Town & Country
A must-have and the perfect addition to anyone's holiday gift list, the book begs to be displayed on a coffee table and leisurely reviewed from the corner of a comfy couch, when there is ample time to savor Vreeland's pioneering five decades in fashion.
