Eleanor Lambert: Empress of Seventh Avenue: Exhibition Walk-Through


Faith Cooper, co-curator of Eleanor Lambert: Empress of Seventh Avenue, presents a walk-through of the exhibition highlighting Lambert's extensive career.
Eleanor Lambert (1903–2003) was a tireless advocate for American fashion designers and the New York fashion industry. Lambert is widely recognized as the original fashion publicist and, over the span of her 75-year career, she worked passionately to legitimize New York and the United States as international fashion centers.
Curated by the students of FIT’s Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice Master of Arts program, the exhibition featured items from the collection of MFIT and archival materials from Gladys Marcus Library’s Special Collections and College Archives (SPARC) at FIT. SPARC serves as the repository for Eleanor Lambert’s papers.
