The dramatic, magnificent world of fashion legend Diana Vreeland, whose contributions to Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art continue to have an impact on the fashion industry today, is captured in Violet Velvet Mittens with Everything. Vreeland adored reading, dancing, and dressing up as a child in Paris. Her love of innovation continued through her career in fashion, where her work was vibrant, outrageous, and never, ever boring. Young readers are shown that being yourself has the greatest influence over being dazzling and bold in Violet Velvet Mittens with Everything, which perfectly reflects Vreeland’s larger-than-life personality.
