The Ebony Fashion Fair celebrates its 47th year and the traveling fashion show will make its annual stop in Gainesville on Wednesday.
Ebony promises new, varied and exciting designs when it debuts in Gainesville Wednesday night at 8 at the Lincoln Middle School Auditorium, 1001 SE 12th St.
This year's show, titled "Living It Up," will feature styles by such designers as Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Christian LaCroix, Fusha, and Kate Mack. Twelve models will showcase the designs; Eunice W Johnson is producer and director.
Locally, the local graduate chapter of Zeta Phil Beta Sorority sponsors the Ebony show. Proceeds from Wednesday night's show will benefit the sorority's Scholarship Fund. Each year, the chapter awards scholarships to college-bound local women in our community. Funds from the Fashion Fair also will benefit the March of Dimes, Zeta's national philanthropy.
Worldwide, since its inception, the Ebony Fashion Fair has donated more than $50 million to charitable organizations and travels to nearly 200 cities around the globe each year.
Tickets are available for purchase from Zeta members for $22. Prices include a year's subscription to Ebony Magazine or a six-month subscription to JET Magazine. For show details or tickets, call 377-0838 or 373-6881.
