1950s IN VOGUE: The Jessica Daves Years

The Museum is delighted to welcome author Rebecca C Tuite for a special talk about American Vogue in the 1950s, under the editorship of Jessica Daves. This talk is based on Ms Tuite’s new, beautifully illustrated publication – 1950s IN VOGUE: The Jessica Daves Years 1952-1962. The book explores the iconic fashion magazine during this time and the oft-overlooked editor-in-chief Jessica Daves. Ms Tuite will also discuss the connection to The Way We Wore exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, and the ways in which Irish designers, such as Sybil Connolly, were embraced by American Vogue.

Rebecca C Tuite is a fashion historian and writer, and a doctoral candidate at the Bard Graduate Centre. Her previous work includes Seven Sisters Style: The All-American Preppy Look, which was featured in the Wall Street Journal, Paris Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Date And Time: Sun, 17 November 2019, 15:00 – 16:00 GMT (Add to Calendar)

Location: National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Benburb Street, D07 XKV4 Dublin (View Map)
