Lisa Immordino Vreeland, director of The Eye Has to Travel, a documentary about her mother-in-law and former Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, brought her film to San Francisco for the second time earlier this month. The screening was at the Castro Theater, and was followed by an extremely thoughtful Q&A with San Francisco fashion maven and philanthropist Joy Bianchi, who tells us she prepared for the event for months by studying up on Ms. Vreeland the elder. If you missed it, check out 7x7's interview with the director, in which she discusses her love of both Paris and San Francisco, getting cold-called by Oscar de la Renta, and scouring Vogue's pristine archives in Paris.
