ABOUT DIANA VREELAND
Diana Vreeland, still recognized today as the Empress of fashion- is a style icon who forever changed the way we experience fashion, art and life. She was a woman who believed in the power of dreams, defied all rules and revolutionized everything she touched.
Diana had boundless vision and pizzazz. She caught the eye of Carmel Snow at a nightclub on a New York rooftop one fateful summer night in 1936. Snow, then Editor of Harper's Bazaar called Diana the next day and offered her a job at the magazine.
She garnered attention with her 'Why Don't You?' column, first published that same year. It was a decadent exploration of unconventional ideas that urged moments of irreverence. It was something no one had ever dared to do and it offered a distinct voice that no one had ever dared to do and it offered a distinct voice that no one had ever heard. That voice, her voice, is what resonated with people....
