London, April 22 (AP) - Lady Duff Gordon, 71, known for many years as one of the world's foremost modistes, died yesterday in a nursing home in Putney.

She was the widow of Sir Cosmo Edmund Duff Gordon, with whom she escaped in a lifeboat from the Titanic when the great liner went down in 1912. Two years, prior to that, she had established the dressmaking house of "Lucile, Ltd," with branches in London, Paris, New York and Chicago.
