Join ACI for an afternoon at Phoenix Art Museum with lunch followed by a lecture with guest speaker author Rebecca C. Tuite on her book IN VOGUE: The Jessica Daves Years, 1952-1962.
Tuite’s book, IN VOGUE, is a gorgeously illustrated celebration of American Vogue at the mid-century, under the editorship of the oft-overlooked editor-in-chief, Jessica Daves.
When Jessica Daves became editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine in 1952, she began a decade-long effort to elevate the world’s most influential fashion magazine to new standards. With a firm belief that “taste is something that can be taught and learned” and an even firmer conviction in the magazine’s “high regard for the best,” Daves led a charge for excellence in the pages of Vogue. This book celebrates that excellence; telling the whole story of Daves’s Vogue, detailing the magazine’s coverage of fashion, interior design, travel, and more, while also offering the first in-depth study of Jessica Daves herself.
