Diana Vreeland: the eye has to travel

Main entry, Swanston St
Has wheelchair access

Diana Vreeland was a fashion visionary whose impact was legendary, influencing and creating the style of such icons as Twiggy, Jacqueline Onassis and Lauren Bacall. Over the course of 25 years beginning in 1937, when she started writing for Harper’s Bazaar, Vreeland established herself as a controversial iconoclast with an astonishing ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, photographers and personalities. In the ’60s Vreeland became editor-in-chief at Vogue, where she defined the fashion of the era.

This film guides us from Paris to New York to London, and through Vreeland’s adventures, accomplishments and passions.

Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland (G, 2011, 86 mins).
