Join fashion historian Rebecca Tuite for an evening on American Vogue’s most enigmatic editor-in-chef, Jessica Daves, and a fascinating moment in the magazine’s history.
Appointed editor-in-chief in 1952, Daves began a decade-long effort to elevate the world’s most influential fashion magazine to new standards. Daves’s Vogue was the first to embrace a “high/low” blend of fashion, offering a complete vision of how other areas of modern life contributed to defining taste and style, and profiling contemporary style-icons, from John and Jackie Kennedy to Charles and Ray Eames.
Tuite is a fashion historian and writer. In addition to 1950s in Vogue: The Jessica Daves Years, 1952-1962, she is the author of Seven Sisters Style: The All- American Preppy Look. She has served as a fashion history consultant and expert for print articles and television segments for the BBC, The Travel Channel and CNN, among others.
1950s fashion is highly encouraged!
