Video: Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman
A quarter of a century, spent by Diana Vreeland at the head of the fashion department of the American Harper's Bazaar, Alexander Vreeland and the Rizzoli publishing house could hardly fit into 300 pages of a new book: talking about this style icon “the most important thing” can take long hours. All the stories related to her work in the magazine, as well as the cult footage by Richard Avedon, Georgy Goiningen-Güne and Louise Dahl-Wulf, are divided according to the issues of Harper's Bazaar published under Diana Vreeland. The chronological order is observed: from 1936, readers will follow step by step into 1962, when the last issue of Harper's Bazaar, created with the participation of the legendary fashion director, was released.
The story of the book "Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman" itself begins with the fact that Alexander and his father visited the old house of Diana Vreeland in Brewster (New York). There he accidentally discovered a stack of old magazines with her notes. Diana's grandson Vreeland talks about this important moment in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar: on the eve of the book's release, memories of how his great grandmother loved Russia and knew how to see magic in seemingly ordinary people and things will be extremely relevant.
