Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair
February 5, 2015–May 3, 2015
VISION. INNOVATION. POWER.
Walk amid stunning gowns and one-of-a-kind ensembles by haute couture designers such as Christian Dior, Patrick Kelly, and Vivienne Westwood in this multisensory re-creation of the pioneering fashion fair that helped redefine beauty, style, and empowerment for African American women everywhere. Inspiring Beauty is the first exhibition to explore the Ebony Fashion Fair, which traveled worldwide, including here in Milwaukee, and its director-producer Eunice W. Johnson, through fifty years of vision, innovation, and power.
At Diverse & Resilient, we see a future in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Wisconsin thrive, living healthy, satisfying lives in safe, supportive communities.
Our mission is the healthy development of LGBT people in Wisconsin by creating and sustaining programs, groups, and communities to take action.
Our name serves as reminder that LGBT people are everywhere, engage in interesting and meaningful lives, and contribute to the welfare of each other and the broader community
