While browsing on Youtube, I noticed a fashion movie, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, and I realized that I had watched it in the theatre when it first came out in 2012. I decided to watch it again on YouTube. It is basically about the biography of Diane Vreeland, but mostly described her contribution to the fashion industry as the Editor in Chief of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue magazines. She discovered certain models because they looked different and promoted their most unique feature as their best feature, making the actor or model a famous celebrity. In her magazine, she displayed the history of fashion, which constantly changed every decade, from 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, with historical politics and society.
But I think nowadays fashion is more nostalgic of 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and even 90s because when I go window-shopping in the mall, I notice some of my old clothes and accessories from when I was in my 20s and younger. It is like nothing is really new in fashion anymore. They are drying up and out of fresh, new ideas.
I decided to add a short video of an interview with Diana Vreeland. But you can still watch the full documentary on YouTube.
