      • Details: When the Paris design workrooms shut down at the start of World War II, New York became the fashion capital of the world. Eleanor Lambert, iconic fashion publicist, propelled the industry forward with the world’s first fashion week, the International Best Dressed List, the Coty Awards, the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute and the Met Gala. Lambert also shaped the careers of some of history’s most renowned fashion icons including Mainbocher, Valentina and Christian Dior. In collaboration with Lambert, Dior launched his first collection, The New Look, and the duo later created the first Paris Fashion Week. John Tiffany, Eleanor Lambert’s biographer and former assistant, will detail how it happened, sharing never-before-seen photos, sensational stories and the juicy gossip behind one of most fascinating decades in the world of fashion.
