Black History - Did you Know?

Will this being our “Black History” month, I wanted to tell you about a few Black designers. We all love the fashions from the past, there was some awesome Black Designers that was my favorite. The first one was: Ann Cole Lowe: read and learn how she made her mark in our fashion world.

Ann Cole Lowe​ (December 14, 1898 – February 25, 1981) was an American fashion designer and ​t​he first ​African American​ to become a noted fashion designer.​[1]​ Lowe's one-of-a-kind designs were a favorite among high society​ matrons from the 1920s to the 1960s. In 1953, she designed the ivory ​silk taffeta​ wedding dress worn by ​Jacqueline Bouvier​ when she married Senator ​John F. Kennedy​.​As she was not getting credit for her work, Lowe and her son opened a second salon, Ann Lowe's Gowns, in New York City on ​Lexington Avenue​ in 1950.​[5]​[8]​[9]​ Her one-of-a-kind designs made from the finest fabrics were an immediate success and attracted many wealthy, high society clients.​[8]​ The ​Saturday Evening Post
