Event description

Description

Extraordinary Women Series: Documentary and Discussion:

She inspired designers, models, photographers. She transformed what a fashion magazine could be. And at the age of 60-plus, she embraced the revolutionary spirit of the 1960s, showcasing the era's game-changing fashions and personalities in the pages of Vogue, where she was editor-in-chief. Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) was unique, an opinionated eccentric, self-taught. Had she been any less strong and imaginative, she might at an early age have succumbed to her mother’s rejection because she was deemed ugly. For years, she reigned as the “Empress of Fashion,” first as columnist and editor at Harper’s Bazaar and then as editor-in-chief at Vogue. And when she lost that job, she turned another milieu on its head, creating blockbuster exhibitions as special consultant to the Costume Institute at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Join us for a screening of the documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. Bata Shoe Museum senior curator Elizabeth Semmelhack will introduce the film and take part in a Q&A.

The event is presented by the Roncesvalles not-for-profit Back Lane Studios, as part of its Extraordinary Women’s Series. (We all need some inspiration!) Any proceeds go to support Back Lane’s video programs for seniors and students.

Admission: Advance, $12 on Eventbrite; door, $13 for seniors, students, and Revue members; $15 general.
