Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman: The Bazaar Years, 1936-1962 #hotbook.
The famed fashion photographer ‘Richard Avedon credited Diana Vreeland with inventing the role of fashion editor after she was appointed by Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Carmel Snow.
Vreeland went from writing a column now often imitated but never equaled, called “Why Don’t You?” to influencing the track of magazine editing immeasurably: Her deft and heavy hand shaped an entire issue, not just a story she styled.
This new book by her grandson ‘The Vogue Years’ is an indepth look at an earlier, more formative period: the Bazaar years.’
If you look at any of these photos you can see they are so modern.
From the clothes to the styling and the art direction. So relevant today.
(Apart from too much smoking #yikes).
Simple style is enduring and always powerful.
Can’t wait to get my hands on this book!
