Two projects, a book & a film, both with the same name, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel chronicle 50 years of international fashion & Vreeland’s rich life.
Called the “High Priestess of Fashion,” Diana Vreeland (1903–1998) 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, & photographers. She was a memorable writer with a vivid personality & a talent for coining aphorisms.

“You know the greatest thing is passion, without it what have you got? I mean if you love someone you can love them as much as you can love them but if it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived.”

“Vogue always did stand for people’s lives. I mean, a new dress doesn’t get you anywhere; it’s the life you’re living in the dress, and the sort of life you had lived before, and what you will do in it later.” -Diana Vreeland
