A Dash of Daring
Carmel Snow and Her Life in Fashion, Art, and LettersBook - 2005
Carmel Snow lived larger than life - she dressed to perfection, was fond of dramatic pronouncements, and had a savage passion for discovering creative genius. It is fitting, then, that her career at the helm of Harper's Bazaar forever changed the face of fashion magazine publishing. Early in the twentieth century, when the typical fashion magazine was narrowly concerned with dressing well, Snow's progressive editorial vision included art, fiction, photography and reportage. Along the way, she launched the careers of would-be legends, including Andy Warhol, Lauren Bacall, Truman Capote and Christian Dior. A Dash of Daring chronicles the extraordinary life of Carmel Snow on both sides of the Atlantic, beginning in nineteenth-century Ireland and continuing on to Paris, Milan and New York City, the fashion capitals of the world. A Dash of Daring is a compelling portrait of the fashion world during a golden era.
