Fashion Culture Online Event: Black Designers in American Fashion: From Enslaved Makers to Streetwear
September 30, 2021 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Katie Knowles, Darnell Jamal Lisby, Kristen E. Stewart, and Elizabeth Way
Join MFIT Assistant Curator Elizabeth Way, editor of the book Black Designers in American Fashion (Bloomsbury, 2021), and authors Kristen E. Stewart, Katie Knowles, and Darnell Jamal Lisby for a panel discussion on the significance of Black American fashion makers from the nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. Black designers have always impacted American fashion culture, and these scholars’ works reveal their erased histories.
The Museum at FIT’s fall Fashion Culture programs are offered online. All programs will premiere on the museum’s YouTube channel at 6 pm on the designated day. Please subscribe to the channel for information about future events.
