ACI Holiday Luncheon

ACI Holiday Luncheon

As Phoenix’s premier holiday event, the Arizona Costume Institute Holiday Luncheon has featured internationally recognized fashion icons such as famed milliner Stephen Jones, and costume designer Patricia Field. This year, ACI is honored to welcome Tonne Goodman, author of Point of View, and former Vogue editor, as the 2019 Holiday Luncheon guest speaker on December 9, 2019.

Tonne Goodman, a native New Yorker, began her career in fashion as a model but quickly decided to explore other areas of the industry. Having studied art, she joined Diana Vreeland at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. From there she went to the New York Times Magazine, to work with Carrie Donovan, before leaving to become a stylist with LIFE magazine and various commercial clients. She was appointed vice president of advertising for Calvin Klein in 1988. There she created iconic imagery for the company. After working alongside Liz Tilberis at Harper’s Bazaar, Goodman joined Anna Wintour at Vogue in 1999, and served as the magazine’s fashion director for nearly twenty years, responsible for dramatic editorials and innumerable eye-catching covers. In 2010, she was awarded the Eleanor Lambert Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Goodman, a mother of two, works and lives in Manhattan.

Enjoy an elegant afternoon that begins with a champagne reception and style focused raffle, followed by lunch and a presentation by the guest speaker.

The annual ACI Holiday Luncheon is the organization's largest fundraiser.  The Arizona Costume Institute (ACI) supports the Fashion Design Department of the Phoenix Art Museum.  ACI promotes fashion appreciation and design through programs, acquisitions for Phoenix Art Museum’s prestigious fashion design collection, and museum exhibition support.
