Join ArtTable for a tour of Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair at The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum.

The first-ever exhibition on the Ebony Fashion Fair, Inspiring Beauty explores the 50-year history of the charity fashion spectacle that redefined the concepts of beauty, style, and empowerment for African Americans by examining the history of the show and its director and producer, Eunice W. Johnson. Exhibition highlights include garments from fashion greats, such as Valentino, Alexander McQueen for Givenchy, Stephen Burrows, Christian Dior, Christian Lacroix, Bob Mackie, Missoni, Sarli, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood. 

Developed by the Chicago History Museum in cooperation with Johnson Publishing Company, Inspiring Beauty offers an unprecedented multi-sensory experience to visitors who have never attended an Ebony Fashion Fair, as well as reconnects those who experienced it first-hand.

Tour will be led by a docent of the Textile Museum.
