Ebony Fashion Fair Chairpersons


As the new millennium rapidly approaches, new ideas, new creations and a new level of imagination will accompany the arrival of the year 2000. And much of that imagination will be displayed when the Ebony Fashion Fair makes its debut this year on September 8 in Matteson, Ill. With the theme "Fashions 2000," the 42nd annual show will be featured in 174 cities in the U.S. and Canada before it closes in Montreal on May 14.

The award-winning show, which is the world's premier traveling fashion show, will showcase new and dramatic designs that were selected by the show's producer, Mrs. Eunice W. Johnson, wife of Ebony Publisher John H. Johnson. The production features original, eye-catching creations from internationally famous fashion designers (including African-American designers). It also highlights items from the collections of the top fashion houses in the United States and Europe.

A variety of nonprofit groups sponsor the fashion show in each city, and the following are the chairpersons who help to coordinate the shows in their respective areas.
