Eleanor Lambert: Empress of Seventh Avenue


Eleanor Lambert (1903-2003) is widely recognized as the “original” fashion publicist, who revolutionized the American fashion industry. Lambert worked passionately to bring global recognition to New York as an international fashion capital over the span of her 75-year career. Ahead of her time, Lambert promoted fashion designers before public relations was a recognized career. She created a new kind of fashion professional and established industry practices that are still used today. Eleanor Lambert: Empress of Seventh Avenue is the first exhibition to explore Lambert’s tireless advocacy for American fashion designers and the New York fashion industry.
