Not familiar with Diana Vreeland? Here is a short introduction:
Diana was born in Paris France to a socialite mother, who moved the family to the New York after World War 1 began. At the age of 19 she was featured in Vogue magazine’s summary of local socialites and called her “one of the most attractive debutantes of the winter”. After marrying and moving to London were she operated her own lingerie business, her husband’s job took them back to New York City.
In 1936, Diana started working for Harper’s Bazaar as an editor. Her column “Why Don’t You?” was a list of extravagant ideas for the modern woman. This column showcased her personal mantra: to have style you must be original. She resigned in 1962 and was appointed editor-in-chief at Vogue Magazine. In 1964 she was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. Diana Vreeland revolutionized the fashion editorial industry by transforming it from socialites dressing other socialites to taking readers on a journey through all the fashion forward options available at any given point in time.
