What would the BAZAAR brand be to­day with­out the vi­sion­ary trio of editor-in-chief Carmel Snow, fash­ion editor Diana Vree­land, and pho­tog­ra­pher Louise Dahl-Wolfe? ‘The Women of Harper’s BAZAAR, 1936-1958’ ex­plores this dy­namic col­lab­o­ra­tion, in­tro­duced this month at The Mu­seum at FIT. Their his­tor­i­cal syn­ergy, il­lus­trated through a cu­ra­tion of pho­to­graphs and dis­plays of gar­ments found in the mag­a­zine dur­ing those two decades, is tapped in an­tic­i­pa­tion of BAZAAR’s 150th an­niver­sary next year. The bi­ogra­phies of th­ese three women are also em­pha­sised in sec­tions, pro­vid­ing a con­text for their com­bined legacy that has in­spired fol­low­ers, fash­ion lovers, and edi­tors world­wide. Un­til April 2 at The Mu­seum at FIT, New York City. www.fit­nyc.edu/mu­seum
