MEMO OF THE WEEK by Alexander Vreeland
Taken from DIANA VREELAND MEMOS, The Vogue Years from Rizzoli, released on October 15th, 2013

The memos in this book have preserved an important record of my grandmother’s greatest strengths, which are reflected in nine chapters that highlight different aspects of her unique management style and leadership ability. Alongside her eccentricities and flair for the dramatic appear her relentless work ethic and keen attention to detail.

Like many of my grandmother’s statements, the overarching story that these memos tell is far more poetic than it is linear.  This book is first and foremost a collection of my grandmother’s words, which tend to carry the reader along and pique his or her inner playfulness, creativity, and sense of fashion.
