Black Fashion Designers: The Exhibition
The Museum at F.I.T. is hosting the Black Fashion Designers exhibition until May 16, 2017.
Significant pieces show the skill of black designers from around the world and their journey in the fashion world throughout the years.
It features pieces by designers worn by public figures including Diana Ross, Michelle Obama, Tina Turner, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and more.
The exhibition also demonstrates the history of blacks in the fashion industry and the controversial issues they faced, even the supermodels. Some designers used their clothes to make a statement on social issues.
They didn't forget about the menswear.
This exhibition is a must-see, especially for Blacks currently or prospected to be in the fashion industry. You get a chance to look at how far Blacks have come, learn about the significant roles these designers played and the challenges they've overcome.
