She grew up in the suburbs of Milwaukee and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.[2]

In 2013 she was featured in the documentary "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" (the title lifted from the caption of a 1990 Victoria Roberts cartoon that appeared in pages of The New Yorker).[3] Variety said of Fargo in their review of the film...."Bergdorf’s charismatic fashion director, Linda Fargo, described as a warmer, friendlier Anna Wintour, she (Fargo) effortlessly commands centerstage for long stretches as she vets new designers’ collections for kindly “maybe later” rejection or “welcome to the family” acceptance".....
