Diana Vreeland was, among other things, editor of Vogue from 1963 to 1971 – and it is for this role that she is best known. She chose to use that time – of freedom, liberation, experimentation in art and culture and sexuality – to champion imperfection, difference, uniqueness. She was, in short, a trailblazer.

If you don’t know anything about Vreeland, let The Eye Has to Travel tell you the rest – as part of Dublin Fashion Festival, the Light House Cinema is showing the film this Sunday, September 9th. (If you already know about Vreeland, nothing I say in this online space is going to further enlighten you.) I have a pair of tickets for the film to give away to one lucky Fash Mob reader.
