Glamour catalogue contributors Patton, Postrel, Rosa, and Steele examine the concept of glamour in three disciplines - fashion, industrial design, and architecture - from its historical origins to its present-day connotations of affluence and elegance. The program concludes with a roundtable discussion moderated by Rosa, followed by a question-and-answer period with the audience.
