Why is this woman smiling? (Well, because her dress is kick-ass, that's one reason.) The other is because she probably (like me) just found out about this wonderful new project from Minh-Ha Pham of Of Another Fashion. (Thanks Kat G for the link!)
Pham is collecting images of women of color, who, as she points out, are almost completely overlooked and left out of fashion histories.
Her blog is fantastic and the pictures are wonderful. Highly recommended (and send her your pictures)!

Oh I’m already in love with that project, and I haven’t even opened the blog yet!
Those are ABSOLUTELY some of the lovliest photos I’ve seen in a long-long time!!
Way to go!
I just sent this info to one of our profs in American Studies. Surely somebody at this university is studying race and fashion. Thank you, Kat G and Erin, for this fantastic resource!
WONDERFUL! Thanks for posting about this!
This is just beautiful- thanks for sharing it!
I also love the opportunity of seeing vintage fashions on real people (well, you know what I mean…)!
What a great idea! I love how the arts can transcend so many artificial boundaries: age, class, gender, geography, etc. I doubt there isn’t a culture in the world whose heritage hasn’t contributed beautifully to the world of fashion. And there are so many “looks” that are beautiful. This project is so exciting!
Thank you for the link- what a wonderful project!
