February 27, 2017 | 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Inspired by Pat Cleveland’s memoir, Walking with The Muses, this program celebrates the audacity of fashion trailblazers Cleveland and Bethann Hardison, while exploring paths taken by black models, designers, and industry insiders to render visible diverse aesthetics found in communities of color around the world. They paved the way for a new generation of black slayage on and off the runway. Presented in partnership with the Fashion Institute of Technology and their latest exhibition, “Black Fashion Designers.” Watch on livestream. @SchomburgCenter #ModelBehavior
