East Building, Level B Atrium
Far more than a display of fabulous clothes, the Ebony Fashion Fair offered black women a vision of what they could wear and, ultimately, who they could be. “Bespoke” events are made-to-order conversations facilitated by special guest speakers. This edition focuses on Eunice Johnson’s progressive inclusion of all body sizes in the Ebony Fashion Fair and the idea of self-image today. Jessamyn Stanley is a Durham-based yoga teacher, body positivity advocate, and writer.
