Diana Vreeland, who died in 1989, is hardly an unknown figure in the worlds of fashion and journalism, with several books and even a critically acclaimed one-woman play having explored her influence as an editor at Harper’s Bazaar and then at Vogue, and later her ground-breaking work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its Costume Institute.

It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life.
