We all know I love fashion, and I know I haven’t voiced out my love for documentary films on this blog yet, but I do — and when you combine the two together, popcorn and soda on hand, life can not be more complete!
My fascination with the fashion industry grew over the years, and it’s not just about designers, models and clothes anymore, I find myself being very interested in the people behind the curtains — the people who make FASHION happens and never get to do a bow after presenting their work.
Before Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, Diana Vreeland was ‘the one and only fashion editor.’ She was behind Harper’s Bazaar from 1937 to 1963 — she went on and continued her career as a fashion editor for VOGUE until the early 70s. Diana Vreeland had a huge impact in the fashion industry. Her influence helped shape how we see fashion, beauty, art, and culture today.
Diana Vreeland: The Eyes Has To Travel is a documentary film celebrating her life and her accomplishments. It is an intimate portrait of the fashion industry through her life and the work she has done.
The film will be screening at the Vancouver Theater for the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) from January 25th – 31st. If you are in the city, don’t forget to check it out. It looks like a very inspiring film and I can not wait to see it!
