More About This Book

Overview

Often referred to as the Empress of Seventh Avenue, Miss Lambert, up to the time of her death at the age of 100, looked the part with her trademark turbans and oversized jewellery. Her barrage of news releases and enthusiastic work as a publicity agent did much to further the careers of numerous American designers, among them Norman Norell, Bill Blass, Oscar de la Renta, Halston, and Anne Klein. She single-handedly created The Best Dressed List, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the COTY and CFDA Awards, and the original Fashion Week.

Eleanor Lambert: Still Here is the definitive monograph on the achievements of the extraordinary woman who changed fashion history, putting American fashion on the map in a culture once wholly dominated by European design and traditions. Written through the eyes and experiences of John Tiffany, who not only worked for Miss Lambert but who has access to a trove of archival materials that have never been published before, this book will provide all of the fashion-obsessed with behind-the-scenes accounts of a woman who gave life to the industry as we now know it.
