Growing up in Topeka, Kan., in the 1970s and 1980s, Kimberly Lane didn’t see a lot of women who looked like her. Lane, an African-American girl surrounded by mostly white neighbors, had few examples outside her family of African-American beauty, femininity and fashion sense.

The traveling fashion show – founded by Eunice Johnson, Ebony fashion editor and wife of the magazine’s publisher – brought glamour, beauty and haute couture fashion to cities across the nation from 1958 to 2009. The traveling show featured all African-American models taking the runway in clothing by the likes of Christian Dior, Givenchy, Yves St. Laurent and Vivienne Westwood, just to name a few.

For little girls like Lane, the event was more than just a fashion show. It was a powerful statement that African-American women were just as stylish and successful as any other woman.
