The Museum at FIT will host a one-day symposium on February 6, 2017, featuring talks by designers, models, journalists, and scholars on African diasporic culture and fashion. The accompanying exhibition, Black Fashion Designers, examines the significant but often unrecognized, impact that designers of African descent have had on fashion design. Join celebrity stylist June Ambrose, reporter Teri Agins, designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, and models Bethann Hardison and Veronica Webb in this educational exploration of fashion, diversity and more.
