Lecture is free for Members; included with General Admission.
Ticket required for Luncheon.
Ticket sales close on Wednesday, November 7, at 5 pm.
Drawing from her book "American Runway: 75 Years of Fashion and the Front Row," Booth Moore, Style and Fashion News Director at the Hollywood Reporter, leads a discussion about the powerful women who got Fashion Week off the ground. Decades before feminist T-shirts were coming down the runways, trailblazing women from fashion’s first publicist, Eleanor Lambert, to first lady Eleanor Roosevelt were helping to shape the industry. Through designer interviews, exclusive photos and her own experience on the front row, Moore brings Fashion Week and its origins to life.
Book signing to follow.
