Description

Ebony Fashion Fair began in 1958 in Chicago, IL. The Ebony Fashion Fair was a staple part of fashion for members of the African American community until 2009. It was considered as being a "Rite of passage for black women."
The show also had another important aspect, it was charitable. It raised millions of dollars for various African American charities.
Eunice Johnson and her husband were important players to the Ebony Fashion Fair. Eunice Johnson was a firm believer in black empowerment and incorporated it into many aspects of her life. Eunice Johnson had a passion for fashion, which was very evident through her wardrobe, which was recently featured in at the Chicago History Museum.
