Lucile designs exhibited in Los Angeles

Aug 29, 2000
An exciting day-long series of lectures will be taking place at Newport's Rosecliff on April 8th, the site of an elegant Lucile fashion show for benefit of war orphans of WWI. This is in conjunction with the on-running Fashion Institute of Technology Lucile exhibit in Manhattan. I will be there! The best news is that this wonderful series is free but filling up fast. Here's the link of topics and speakers.
2:30 - 3:30 p.m. Student Presentations
Graduate students will present their work on the exhibition "Designing the IT Girl: Lucile and Her Style," focusing on the life of the couturiere Lucile, Lady Duff Gordon, who transformed her models and clients into stars and made the fashion show a form of entertainment. Among her clients were Isadora Duncan, Mata Hari and Sarah Bernhardt. All speakers are M.A. candidates in FIT's Program in Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory and Museum Practicle.
