Lisa Immordino Vreeland, author of “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel” was the featured speaker at the Arizona Costume Institute’s Holiday Luncheon. Vreeland is married to the grandson of legendary “Harper’s Bazaar” and “Vogue” editor Diana Vreeland. Her book chronicles 50 years of international fashion as well as Vreeland’s life. Illustrations in the book include original fashion spreads and famous photos that reveal how Vreeland shaped American taste. A book signing followed the luncheon, depleting the supply of books.

 

During the Dec. 14 event in the Great Hall of Phoenix Art Museum, a selection of fashions from the museum’s archive, chosen by ACI Haute Couture Benefactors, was on display. Curator of Fashion Design Dennita Sewell shared highlights of the selection with the 350 guests.

 

The event started with a Champagne reception followed by a three-course luncheon catered by Fabulous Foods. The luncheon was a fundraiser to benefit Phoenix Art Museum’s Fashion Design collection and programs.
