Vogue USA. 16 October 1966 issue. Diana Vreeland's inspired editorial entitled ‘The Great Fur Caravan’. Shot on location in the Japanese Alps by Richard Avedon and stars Veruschka and a gorgeous 7' Sumo wrestler they discovered because that's what Diana wanted. Magical. Compelling. What fashion editorial should be... Fur. Snow. Alps.
Diana Vreeland created the concept of the fashion editor. She joined Harper’s Bazaar in 1936 and remained there for 25 years and the images she created are the most referenced in fashion history. She had a hand in everything, and everything she touched she revolutionised.
