Wild Child to Couture Style: The Shailah Edmonds Story [Virtual]

March 18, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Shailah Edmonds will discuss her success as a top model during an era when Black women were excluded from elite runways and will share her insights and experiences in the world of fashion and in the world at large. Recently profiled in the NYT Style Section, Shailah Edmonds was spotted walking down a street in Washington, DC, by a modeling scout in 1977. She went on to become a top international couture model in Paris, working with Yves St. Laurent, Givenchy, Dior, Valentino, Versace, Armani and other designers. Organized by Long Island Reads.
