The Smithsonian: African American Women's Fashion



The Black Fashion Museum Collection, collected by Lois Alexander Lane, the founder of the Black Fashion Museum, is now housed at the the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. The collection was donated by Lane's daughter, Joyce Bailey, in 2007. The collection includes garments created and worn by African American women from the nineteenth through twentieth centuries--slaves as well as famed designers, such as Ann Lowe. For more information, and to view the photo gallery, here's the article from The Washington Post.

Spring is one of the best, and most exciting times of the year to go shopping. There are brand new spring designs in every store, and everyone is excited to put away their boring, old winter clothing. Everyone wants something new for the spring and summer seasons.

It's really very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I only use world wide web for that reason, and take the hottest news.
