At TWOmuchSTYLE we bring you the information that matters in your quest to living a fashionable life… Ground breaking EBONY magazine geared towards African Americans is now sending fifty years of couture to the auction block.
The late founder Eunice W. Johnson who headed the legendary Ebony Fashion Fair traveling runway shows, constantly raised money for charities which were responsible for sending numerous young African Americans to college. As a young design assistant at the House of Christian Lacroix in the mid nineties, I had the honor to meet Madam Johnson several times when she would travel to Paris to purchase from the House of Lacroix. She acquired some of the most iconic pieces from the French Haute Couture, Italian Alta Moda and the New York Collections.Some of her designer favorites included: Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Paco Robanne, Thierry Mugler, Pierre Cardin, Emmanuel Ungaro, Lancetti, Sarli, Gianfranco Ferre, Geoffrey Beene, Halston and Bob Mackie.
Because of her perseverance, the auction “Treasures from the Ebony Fashion Fair Archives” is extremely important to the history and world of fashion.
