ABOUT THE FILM:
DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL is an intimate portrait and a vibrant celebration of one of the most influential women of the 20th century, an enduring icon whose influence changed the face of fashion, beauty, art, publishing and culture forever. During her fifty year reign as the “Empress of Fashion,” she launched Twiggy, advised Jackie O and coined some of fashion’s most eloquent proverbs such as “the bikini is the biggest thing since the atom bomb.” She was the fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar where she worked for 25 years before becoming editor in chief of Vogue followed by a remarkable stint at the Met’s Costume Institute where she helped popularize its historical collections.
Directed and produced by: Lisa Immordino Vreeland
Co-directed and edited by: Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt and Frederic Tcheng
Opens in theatres on September 21.
ABOUT LACMA’s COSTUME COUNCIL
Supporting LACMA’s internationally recognized Costume and Textiles Department, the Costume Council is the largest of LACMA’s ten Art Councils. Established in 1954, the Costume Council’s mission to expand public awareness of fashion, design, costume and textiles as art is realized through intriguing, behind-the-scenes events for its exclusive membership – from presentations and celebrations by well-known designers, luminaries, curators and authors, to cocktail receptions, fashion shows, in-store previews, and book-signings.
