Fashion Model Women
The Lives of Eileen Ford and Diana Vreeland
Presented by Kathleen Cunningham
Two women dominated the course of the fashion model business for over 50 years -one, a powerful magazine editor, the other a powerful model agent. They had little, if any, direct contact with each other and came from strikingly different backgrounds; however, their influence on the business of global fashion was immense. Based on recent biographies, this program discloses their fascinating stories.
Kathleen is a member of the Dallas Professional Book Reviewers Association. She developed the Arboretum’s Speakers Bureau over 10 years and served six years on the Arboretum’s Board of Directors. A devoted member of the Women’s Council, she was the recipient of the prestigious Founders Award in 2016.
