She first came to prominence in the 1930s as a reporter of society news. In 1945, she started work at "Bellezza" magazine, where she wrote articles on fashion. "Irene Brin: Birth of Italian Look" is an intelligent and thoughtful portrait that depicts Brin as an extraordinary promoter of Italian culture.
