Join Jeffrey Banks, co-author of Norell: Master of American Fashion, Ellin Saltzman, former fashion director and senior vice president at firms such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s and Bergdorf Goodman, Stan Herman, designer and former president of the CFDA, and Ralph Rucci, couturier, artist and author, for a sparkling introduction to Norman Norell—the first American designer to employ couture techniques, refined workmanship, and luxurious fabrics—whose dresses, coats, and suits were deemed by critics to be “the equal of Paris.” This panel discussion will be moderated by Patricia Mears, deputy director of MFIT. A book signing will follow the presentation.
