Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair | MODA

The current exhibit at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) is bold, bright, and inspiring. It's essentially a fashion show featuring ensembles that at one time were featured in the Ebony Fashion Fair. It's come to Atlanta after debuting at the Chicago History Museum, so this is only the second venue ever to host it! But it's primarily about the story of how the Ebony Fashion Fair and Mrs. Eunice Johnson's (the show's director and producer) fight to bring high fashion and beauty to everyone in the 60's, particularly the African-American population. According to MODA's Executive Director, Laura Flusche, it is about the "belief that everyone should have equal access to glamour and beauty...It is not just looking at fashion. It is a history story; a political story; a story of entrepreneurship all from one amazing person.

It's only in town until January 4th, so don't miss it!
