“There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.” – Diana Vreeland
We love and are inspired by grand dame Diana Vreeland, not only because of the break through thinking she created with fashion and design but especially the way she lived her life with full joyful force and color.
“From the time I got married at eighteen until the time I went to work in 1937, twelve years – I read. Reed [Vreeland] and I would read things together out loud, which was marvellous. That was the charm of it – when you’ve heard the word it means so much more than if you’ve only seen it”
“You know the greatest thing is passion, without it what have you got? I mean if you love someone you can love them as much as you can love them but if it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived.”
“Fashion must be the most intoxicating release from the banality of the world.”
“Exaggeration is my only reality”
