Fashion in Page: Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman

"The Modern Woman" cover

“Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman”
 Alexander Vreeland
Rizzoli International

The 300-page book is focused on Diana Vreeland’s time as editor at Harper’s Bazaar, illustrating three decades of the magazine, divided annually. Each section opens with 12 monthly covers of the magazine followed by a selection of images that bear witness to her innovative vision and her work with photographers such as Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Lillian Bassman, Martin Munkacsi e George Hoyningen-Huene.

“The 26 years at Harper’s Bazaar were the most significant in her career, because they showed her true person and essence,” replied Alexander Vreeland, when asked why he didn’t choose the more recent period of his grandmother’s life at Vogue. “Diana was a woman full of creativity, so she founded her life on ideas and imagination. I think this is the greatest legacy that my grandmother left for today’s fashion and the future,” he added. The event was held as a Q&A session open to the public.

“I tried to immortalize her through more than 300 images into the book, because I think that images are timeless and live even today. This is a work out of time, because all the women who are portrayed could live today, like my grandmother”.
