‘Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel’ (2011) is a documentary that explores the fashion doyenne’s maverick world of art, culture and fashion over the decades. Vreeland – still recognized today as The Empress of Fashion – is a style icon who forever changed the way we experience fashion, art and life. She believed in the power of dreams, defied all rules and revolutionized everything she touched. “There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.” – Diana Vreeland.
