I believe that audience members at the events I speak at should leave feeling invigorated, not only learning something new, but also discovering how the unknown and incredible stories of the past 

resonate, relate and inform our life today!  

 I tailor each keynote for that audience and can also develop a completely customized talk for specific groups and occasions.


Lectures & Talks

No one wants to be lectured!!!   Unless it is a fun and passionate talk filled with incredible images never before seen, while learning about the groundbreaking efforts of our incredible female pioneers.  

My talks and lectures reach audiences large and small all over the globe, speaking at museums, corporations, clubs, organizations, conferences, associations, universities, and libraries.


On TV, Radio, & Movies

I have been called a fashion historian, but I prefer to think of myself as a storyteller who understands and shares how the pieces and personalities of the past often fit perfectly together. 

 I am featured in the four-episode 2019 CNN Original Series American Style, encompassing the 20th century.  I appear often in fashion documentaries, as well as on television, radio, and podcasts, and am a frequent pundit in newspapers, magazines, and blogs. I was also featured in the documentary, Battle of Versailles, as well as the award-winning film, Versailles 73: American Runway Revolution.

Library of Congress

In the over 200-year history of the Library of Congress, I was honored to be the first person to speak on the topic of fashion.  The Thomas Jefferson Building also featured an exhibition on fashion books, including my book Eleanor Lambert: Still Here as well as a book signing after my talk.
