Flashback

wut is it? An homage to Diana Vreeland, the editor of American Vogue from 1962-1971, following her columnist stint at Harper’s Bizarre from 1937-1962. This chic fashion icon originally hailed from Paris, France, fittingly, but spent some of her youth in New York City on the upper east side, when her family fled France during WW1. 

Vreeland has the perfect mix of Parisian Class and New York Spunk. What I love about her is she defied the typical “uptight” French fashionista, and the stern editor stereotype we see in editors like Anna Wintour today (pursed lips, no smile). She laughed in photos, she was full of life, and she did a damn good job at Vogue. Her work with Richard Avedon is a vital moment in fashion history, and she is someone I strongly admire.

  1. Sasha, You are awesome. Taking the Big Apple fashion scene by storm, with the J Brand to keep you on the edge. I am so proud of you. You are a wonderful reflection of your parents. New York is so much fun when you are young. Keep it up. Love, Veronicka from Miami
