Yesterday evening, I attended the Ebony Fashion Fair show – the world’s largest traveling fashion show is the tagline. The show is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the theme for the 2007 – 2008 season is “Glam Odyssey.” The show has duel purpose of showcasing to the black community high fashion, and raising funds for the charity organization that organizes the event where the show travels. The $40.00 includes a six month subscription to Jet Magazine, or a year subscription to Ebony Magazine, price of admission along some of the proceeds going to a charitable organization, typically a scholarship fund.
The show has many designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, and Tracy Reese. Ebony Fashion Fashion manages to do a wonderful show and includes a full-figured model on its runway (yes there something for the hips and thighs gals).
