Ensembles and accessories are displayed on specially manufac- tured mannequins, while archival photographs and video outline the history of the traveling fashion show and its director and producer, Eunice Walker Johnson. Inspir- ing Beauty explores three major themes: Vision, Innovation and Power. Fashion Fair made 170 stops each year, including Milwau- kee, and an exhibit section includes 13 designer garments from Mount Mary University's signature Ebony Fashion Fair collection. "This is a stunning exhibition that has been dramatically installed to give the visitor a true runway experience," said Daniel Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. On view through May 3, the exhibit is organized by the Chicago History Museum in cooperation with Johnson Publishing Company, publisher of Ebony magazine. Visit for information.
