September 29, 1903 – August 22, 1989
One of the most inspiring personalities to ever impact the world of fashion, Diana Vreeland was, and still is, in a class all her own.
“Never be boring!” she said. For Diana, the rules in fashion were the same as those in life—there were none, except to remain original and interesting. “We all need a splash of bad taste…no taste is what I’m against.”
She had a creative vision as sharp as a knife, a personality as big as the room, and determination to match them both. She championed the uniqueness of the individual, created some of the most striking editorials to ever grace the pages of Harper’s Bazaar (1936-1962) and Vogue (1962-1971), and reimagined the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Her legacy is one that continues to inspire us to create, to search for a fresh perspective, and to pursue our passions with vigor.
