The Eye Has to Travel

[Diana Vreeland portrait by mid-century Vogue illustrator, René Bouché.]

Savannah is always worth a visit but design enthusiasts have added incentive to head to the city April 15 through 19 when a host of industry luminaries (interior design, fashion) will be at the Savannah College of Art and Design for the annual happening, SCAD Style.

Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland will discuss her recent documentary, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel on April 16 at 6 p.m.; Charlotte Moss will talk about the visual life and what sparks curiosity on April 17 at 3 p.m.; M.K. Quinlan and the G & G editorial team will participate in a panel discussion about the future of the lifestyle magazine, April 18 at 11:30 a.m.; and globe-trotting Nathan Turner is scheduled to arrive April 19 for a 3 p.m. presentation on American style and entertaining at the SCAD Museum of Art (I think he is going to appreciate the institution's preserved 19th-century gray brick walls and adaptive reuse of an old warehouse). These are just a few highlights. See the master calendar for a complete overview.

At SCAD's Atlanta campus, Ralph Lauren's Liz Paley, senior vice president of marketing, and Joe Berean, creative director of wholesale e-commerce, will speak on April 15 at 6 p.m.

Update 3.24.13
If you enjoyed Georgia native Deborah Draper's documentary, Versailles '73: American Runway Revolution, about a certain barrier-breaking moment in fashion history, please note the director will be on hand for a Savannah screening and panel discussion along with "Halstonette" Pat Cleveland and Coty-Award-winning designer Stephen Burrows on April 15 at 2 p.m.
