Have you visited the Black Fashion Designers Exhibition at The Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology)? Co-curators Ariele Elia and Elizabeth Way did a superb job of exposing us to the challenges black designers face and their contributions. This exhibition covers eras from the 1950’s to the present.
I recently read an article about one of the featured designers, Ann Lowe, who designed Jackie Bouvier’s wedding gown. At that time Ann didn’t receive any recognition. Supposedly Jackie responded when asked who designed her gown that it was made by a colored woman.
Let us continue to welcome the value of diversity.
