Known within the industry as fashions 'fairy godmother, Vreeland was famed for her eloquent and inspiring words of wisdom such as this particular favourite: The only real elegance is in the mind; if you've got that, the rest really comes from it.
A magazine editor, costume consultant and style icon, she had two key obsessions: the colour green and Venice - and thus sparked the Diana Vreeland after Diana Vreeland exhibition.
Proud to see his grandmother still regarded in such a curatorial manner, Alexander Vreeland said, she made the relation between fashion and art possible. This is standing on her shoulders.
The exhibition will run until June 26th 2012; so in the words of her famous column, Why Dont You treat yourself to a trip to Venice and immerse yourself in Vreelands fashion history.
