Gallery Talk: 20th-Century Italian Designers and the Ebony Fashion Fair
Start Date: 4/27/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 4/27/2017End Time: 1:00 PM


In the post-WWII years, haute couture fashion was no longer the prerogative of the French. Italian couturiers mixed aristocratic tastes and centuries-old craftsmanship with unique flair, pushing Italian design to the forefront of the global fashion market. This talk by Tanya Williams Wetenhall, GW assistant professor of design, will explore the inimitable Italian style on display in Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair, as well as the Italian fashion industry’s relationship with the United States and the Ebony Fashion Fair.

This program is part of the museum's weekly Textiles at Twelve series, which explores the textile arts and global cultures through films, lectures, gallery talks, and more. Free, no reservations required.
