THE TITANIC RUNWAY SHOW & The Style Icons Who Created a Flurry
One month after the Titanic sank, silent screen starlet and survivor Dorothy Gibson starred in Saved from the Titanic, wearing the same dress, sweater, and coat that she wore that night.
CHARLOTTE WARDLE CARDEZA
The embodiment of extravagance, Charlotte Wardle Cardeza travelled with 14 trunks — many by Louis Vuitton — that were filled with Tiffany jewelry, fashions from Lord & Taylor and Saks & Co., and much more.
ISIDOR and IDA STRAUS
First-class passengers and co-owners of Macy’s department store, Isidor and Ida Straus stood on the deck, holding hands, while she refused to step into the lifeboat. They perished together and are memorialized on a plaque inside Macy’s flagship New York City location.
LUCY, LADY DUFF-GORDON
An entrepreneur of her time, her successful Maison Lucile (opened in London 1894) and Lucile Ltd.’s (1910), sold shocking yet elegant lingerie and dress designs that revolutionized Edwardian fashion. She, along with her husband, Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon, survived the Titanic disaster.
