"Diana Vreeland is a fashion icon, and someone I looked up to as a young designer.  It was her advice column " Why Don't you" that she wrote for Harpers Bazaar, that especially spoke to me.  It was outrageous and stylish.  In honor of her, we have created our own version through the Araks lens." ~ Araks Yeramyan
