Diana Vreeland was the beginning and the end in all things chic. Her persona and dictums were not to be overlooked or ignored.  Diana Vreeland was the twentieth century’s greatest arbiter of style and elegance. As fashion editor at Harpers Bazaar for twenty-five years, Editor in Chief of Vogue and as creator of fantastic exhibits for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, Diana, with her passion for living, her legendary wit and charm energized the world of style and fashion for over fifty years. Vreeland set about reinventing the job of fashion editor. Richard Avedon credits Vreeland with starting “a totally new profession”. She had the unique ability to always think “outside the box”. Even the décor of her Park Avenue apartment was an original. Billy Baldwin, the famous New York decorator who actually worked with her on the project, Diana said that she wanted her apartment to look like a garden in Hell. Diana Vreeland will always be remembered as  a visionary and a pioneer in the world of style, elegance and fashion.
