A Documentary on Diana Vreeland, the Original American Fashionista
August 20, 2012
Diana Vreeland, original fashion guru and former U.S. Vogue editor, will forever remain a visionary and fashion revolutionary. From Vreeland’s early years in high society, to her lengthy tenure at Harper’s Bazaar (1936 to 1972) and decade at Vogue (1962 to 1972), Vreeland inspired women and shaped the role of today’s “fashion editor.”
With the aplomb of a woman with unparalleled confidence, Vreeland reigned over the fashion world. She understood the relevance of fashion in the context of social evolution and worked tirelessly to challenge, motivate, and applaud women. Vreeland said, “What these magazines gave was a point of view. Most people haven’t got a point of view; they need to have it given to them.” These poignant words, spoken by a then eighty one year old Vreeland, still remain true.
Luckily for the fashion saavy women of today, a documentary called “The Eye Has To Travel,” which will be released on September 21st, will give captivating insight into the life and role of the original American fashionista.
