The 50th Annual Ebony Fashion Fair Glam Odyssey will appear in Lubbock at the Estacado High School Auditorium on April 1 at 7:00 p.m. The world's largest traveling fashion show is produced by Ebony Magazine and is sponsored by the Lubbock Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority for the benefit of the Luella Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Mrs. Eunice W. Johnson, producer and director of the show, personally selects fashions from the exclusive collections of famed designers such as Dior, Carven, Feraud, Valentino, Bob Mackie, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, and Emanual Ungaro. Mrs. Johnson is meticulous and thorough in purchasing the most spectacular fashions available for the Ebony Fashion Fair audiences.
More than 200 exquisite garments complete with the latest accessories, 11 female and 2 male models, commentator, music director, stage and business managers, and wardrobe staff travel from coast to coast. Because of the unprecedented demand for the sponsorship of the show by charitable organizations around the country, Ebony Fashion Fair now tours two seasons, and appears in more than 200 cities.
This is not the average runway fashion show. The models treat the audience to an evening filled with songs, dance routines and skits; all to the background music of a live band lead by Broadway pianist, Theodis Rodgers. The troupe includes a female full figured model and there are fashions everyone can appreciate and enjoy. Door prizes are offered by American Airlines, Dillards, Reflections II Salon, Hanes Hosiery and more. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
