Three iconic supermodels of LA CABINE DE GIVENCHY formed by HUBERT DE GIVENCHY will be reunited at the global premiere of the JOSEPHINE BAKER exhibit.
SANDI BASS, DIANNE WASHINGTON-KAY, and CAROL COLLINS-MILES who will be performing at the VIP RECEPTION on September 28th at the ALHAMBRA BALLROOM in HARLEM.
CAROL, SANDI AND DIANE are Advisory Board members of the exhibit, and have not seen each other since the late 1980s. Therefore, we are greatly honored!
GIVENCHY was the first to use BLACK MODELS in 1977 to an unforgettable effect after the show at VERSAILLES in 1973, where JOSEPHINE BAKER actually performed. After GIVENCHY, YVES SAINT LAURENT was highly inspired to book BLACK MODELS.
Other supermodels on our Advisory Board include COCO MITCHELL, BEVERLY JOHNSON, LU SIERRA, ALVA CHINN, and PEGGY DILLARD who will also be performing to solo violin.
To CAROL, DIANE and SANDI, we THANK YOU for your tremendously significant role in the history of fashion. In 2019, you remain QUEENS and we wish you continued success!
