Particular Passions

Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Shaped our Times

The oral biography of Diana Vreeland, whose pioneering exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art elevated fashion to a fine art.

“I always have doubts about what I do. When I start a show, I’m very timid and nervous for weeks and months. It takes a great deal out of me. It’s hard work. You start with an idea and you believe in it and then it grows around you... you gain confidence. Some days are big days. You jump. You get a whole excitable, marvelous... wonderful it-doesn’t-balance, what-the-hell-are-we-going-to-do feeling. Then you know. It all comes gradually and then entirely... somehow it ends up that people like it and I’m very happy, and very proud, and very very pleased, because that’s the job.”
