Attention all fashionistas: ready to showcase  your flair for fashion? Haute couture and street style welcomed! The Fashion Legacy Association for Industry Recognition (FLAIR, Inc.) is excited to present its third, biennial three-day fashion extravaganza – that is, FLAIR 2019. It kicks off July 26-28, 2019, showcasing the work of emerging and prominent African American designers on the catwalk as well as providing mentoring and scholarship to up-and-coming fashion and design students.  

Attendees at the charity fashion event will showcase their #OOTD, reflecting its theme of “The Jazz Age of Fashion,” beginning at 6 p.m. with a VIP reception and dinner by the bite on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at the California African American Museum (CAAM), located at 600 State Drive in downtown Los Angeles. The runway will feature former Ebony Fashion Fair® models, hitting the catwalk, styling and profiling designs from African American designers

In celebrating the legacy and spirit of the Ebony Fashion Fair® fashion show, FLAIR, Inc. will honor individuals who’ve made a fashionable impact in pop culture. This year’s honorees include iconic fashion designer Stephen Burrows, who wowed audiences in 1973 at the historic Battle of Versailles Fashion Show in Paris; celebrity makeup artist Derrick Rutledge, the man behind the “beat” face of former First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey; and celebrity fashion designer Angela Dean of the DeanZign atalier, a red-carpet favorite of entertainers and Hollywood’s A-list crowd.
