Before there was Anna, there was the visionary Diana Vreeland, the extraordinary woman often referred to as the “Empress of Fashion.”
In this critically acclaimed documentary film, “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel” you’ll see an intimate portrait of this legendary icon’s life. From her storied days as the editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, to her stewardship of the Met’s Costume Institute, the story of Diana Vreeland’s incredible life unfolds, giving the viewer a captivating inside look at her enduring influence on fashion, art, beauty, publishing and culture.
The film is directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, the wife of Diana’s grandson, Andrew, who says she “fell in love with Diana Vreeland as a young college student, mesmerized by her pages in Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.” As fate would have it, Lisa Immordino Vreeland later married in to the Vreeland family and decided to make a film documentary while conducting research for a book about Diana’s life.
“Although I never got to meet Mrs. Vreeland, I became fully immersed in her world. I have been given the confidence and trust of her family and friends, as well as access to Diana Vreeland’s archives and the archives of Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and the Costume Institute.”
The film opens this Friday, Oct. 12 for a limited engagement at the Camelview 5 theatres, adjacent to Scottsdale Fashion Square. For more information on the film and to view the trailer, go to the film’s official website, dianavreelandfilm.com .
NOTE: For now, the movie has been scheduled to run at least through Thursday, Oct. 18.
