The World of Carmel Snow



Carmel Snow (1887 – 1961), the notorious publishing rival of Vogue editor Edna Woolman Chase, left Vogue in 1932 to become fashion editor, then editor of Harper's Bazaar. This vibrant memoir recalls the glamour and all-consuming work of her passionately conducted career. Determined and opinionated, Snow had a brilliant eye for new talent: she hired Diana Vreeland and Richard Avedon, commissioned editorial from Truman Capote, and applauded Balenciaga’s first collection in a silent ‘hate filled room’. Fashion photography was transformed by her in the moment she appointed photojournalist Martin Munkacsi’s outdoor motion shoot on a windswept beach. A women of buoyant and unlimited energy, she rarely slept (except in the arms of her partner on the dance floor) or ate, but seldom missed a three-martini lunch. She died just four years after her retirement at the age of 70.
