Lorraine Davies interview 2011 June 24

In this interview, Davies reflects on her career working as a professional model from 1946 to 1967. Topics covered include Davies’s life and background prior to modeling, her experiences working as model in New York in the late 1940s prior to the establishment of a standardized and regulated modeling industry, working with photographer Howell Conant, signing with Ford Models, and working with founder Eileen Ford. Davies interview gives testimony to what it was like to be working during this period. Prior to standardization within the modeling industry models were expected to set their own wages and collect their own fees. Additionally, models would only be paid after agencies had been paid by their clients; a process which could often take months to years before a model could collect their earnings.
