Update: Designing Women Lecture Series

Dear All,

I am pleased to invite you all to attend the 2012-13 Decorators Club lecture series Modern Women: Visionaries of Design. With this series, we celebrate five pioneering talents of the 20th century that continue to influence and inspire. We tried to select women who were undersung, worked in different areas of design and represented the entire century. Our biggest challenge wasn't finding women to illuminate but in editing down a list that went for miles and miles.

Our first and earliest visionary is Vanessa Bell. Dr. Alexandra Gerstein from the Courtauld Gallery and who organized the recent Omega Workshops exhibition will be speaking on Wednesday, October 3 at the New York School of Interior Design. For more information about the series and to purchase tickets (which benefit interior design scholarships), please click here.
