Black Designers in American Fashion: From Enslaved Makers to Streetwear
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 discuss 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.
