Very few women have contributed to fashion the way Diana Vreeland did during her tenure at Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. She launched supermodel Twiggy. She gave Jackie O fashion advice. Called the ''Empress of Fashion,'' her 50-year career left an indelible mark on 20th century culture. Her incredible story is captured in the documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, Diana's granddaughter-in-law, The Eye chronicles the story of the woman who once famously said, ''Style is everything … Without it, you're nothing.''
Peter Speliopoulos, vice president for design at Donna Karen New York and Robert Turner, former curatorial assistant to Diana Vreeland and fashion editor at Vogue join Gary Tinterow, director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, for a discussion of Vreeland's incredible career at Friday’s 7 p.m. screening.
