Diana Vreeland was an influential fashion editor and stylist in the 1960s and 1970s. During her career, she worked for some of the world's leading fashion magazines, including Harper's Bazaar and Vogue.
Despite being (until our times) a great reference in fashion, photography and design, she has also been a passionate defender of the idea that traveling is essential to keep abreast of the latest trends and styles in the world of Fashion.
Vreeland knew that the world of fashion required constant evolution, and that to stay up to date it was necessary to leave the 4 walls and explore new places. In her famous 1984 book, " Allure ", she wrote about the great importance of discovering new trends outside of one's country and seeing fashion in another cultural context. Which inspired us to drop everything and travel through Latin America.
She was not only traveling to see the latest designer collections on the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York, but also intended to immerse herself deeply in the cultures and fashions of far flung places, such as Morocco, Thailand, and Japan, with the intention of to discover new trends and styles.
Through her travels, she gained a global perspective on fashion that few had, realizing that trends are not limited to big fashion cities.
For both Vreeland and us, traveling is a way to find creative inspiration. Stepping out of your comfort zone, you find new ideas and new ways of thinking about fashion. As he once said: “ If you want to keep an open and fresh mind, you must travel. Traveling is the only way to see things in their true perspective."
