LISBON, PORTUGAL - As part of the 40th edition of Lisbon Fashion Week, the organizers are offering a unique opportunity to see a documentary about one of the world’s most talented fashion editors, Diana Vreeland.

A powerful, provocative and ultra talented fashion pioneer, Diana Vreeland (1903 - 1989), worked for Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1965.

Her influence not only changed the face of fashion, beauty, and art, but also inspired a lot of people working in the fashion industry and shaped the way magazine created stories.
