Called 'the High Priestess of Fashion,' Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) was an American original whose impact on fashion and style in her time was legendary. Beginning in 1936, when she became a fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar, Vreeland established herself as a controversial visionary who had an astonishing ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, personalities and photographers. She continued to be a force in fashion throughout her long career, eventually becoming editor-in-chief of "Vogue magazine" (1962-70) and muse-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute (1972-89). "Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel" was created by Lisa Vreeland, a filmmaker and fashion consultant. "Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel" chronicles fifty years of international fashion. With 350 illustrations, including many famous photographs by Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and other major fashion photographers, it is an intensely visual book that shows fashion as it is being invented, through the pages of magazines that shaped taste through their superb fashion editing, photography, and art direction.
