Recommended Resource - Black Designers In American Fashion by Elizabeth Way

Today, our recommended read is a book that discusses the story of Elizabeth Keckley, one of the most important figures in the history of fashion.

This book, inspired by the award-winning exhibition at the Museum at FIT, uncovers hidden histories of Black designers at a time when conversations about representation and racialised experiences in the fashion industry have reached all-time highs. Interweaving fashion design and American cultural history, this book fills critical gaps in the history of fashion and offers insights and context to students of fashion, design, and American and African American history and culture.
