Event description

Description

Behind many of the fashion industry’s shimmering campaign images, collections, and theatrical runway shows, is the creative genius of a queer person of color. Names like Andre Leon Talley (former Creative Director of American Vogue) and Edward Enninful (Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue) are most familiar, but a host of lesser known creatives toil behind the scenes. Join us for a panel discussion with Dario Calmese, Audrey Smaltz, Kyle Hagler, Edward Buchanan and Stephen Galloway on the often under-acknowledged influence, yet undeniable impact of queer Black voices in fashion.
