The contribution of black designers to the world of fashion is the focal point of a current exhibition at the African American Museum in Dallas’ Fair Park.
"A Stitch In Time: 1800 to 2000" runs through Feb. 28 and features 42 garments from the likes of Patrick Kelly, Willi Smith, Stephen Burrows, Phat Farm and Sean John. The exhibition was organized by Washington’s Black Fashion Museum.
"It covers the gamut of fashion from the African American point of view," said curator Valerie Chisholm. "We felt it was important to let the community know the achievements of blacks in the apparel industry."
The exhibit highlights the fashions of Ann Lowe, who designed the gown worn by Jacqueline Bouvier when she wed John F. Kennedy. In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum will stage discussions hosted by historians, designers and educators. 536 Grand Ave., (214) 565-9026.
