Eleanor Lambert, Godmother of American Fashion
Jul 17, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
Simply put, without Eleanor Lambert there would be no American fashion industry. At least not the multi-billion dollar, obsessively publicized, obsessively scrutinized and obsessively obsessed over entity which we know and love/secretly hate today. An extraordinary woman by any means, she lived to be 100 and in her lifetime she contributed as much to fashion as any designer or editor, while etching out the role of the fashion publicist. PR girls, take note -- this is the stuff you're made of.
