Join Urbanites for a special celebration of pioneering Black women, such as Ella Sheppard (1851 – 1914), co-founder of the world-famous Fisk Jubilee Singers. URBANITES will explore forgotten aspects of our cosmopolitan heritage through women who used fashion to challenge racial stereotypes.
**The exhibition (to be launched on 16/03) will look at the evolution of fashion in Manchester since 1913… If you would like to contribute to its success, bring a photograph of your past fashion statement(s) or faux-pas to Sidnie Co. Couture.
