Vintage Black Glamour: Fashion Speaks at The National Arts Club by Photojournalist Lisa Pacino

Vintage Black Glamour: Fashion Speaks at The National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York, January 13, 2017.


Nichelle Gainer, author of Vintage Black Glamour and Vintage Black Glamour: Gentlemen’s Quarters was joined for an insightful evening exploring the lives of glamorous men and women. Ms. Gainer spoke about the legends that fill these wonderful pages along with the projected images; thereafter she signed books and spoke with her guests. The audience included fashion commentator-businesswoman Audrey Smaltz and her partner former Olympian-financial officer Gail Marquis, Miss Ethiopia 2015-16 Kisanet Teklehaimanot, filmmaker Caroline de Fontaine-Stratton, jazz singer Candice Hoyes, and numerous high fashion glamorous men and women.

Inspired by her family history, Gainer has unearthed a revealing treasure trove of historic photographs of famous actors, dancers, writers and entertainers who worked in the 20th-century entertainment business. In her books, alongside the familiar images and stories of renowned performers such as Eartha Kitt, Lena Horne, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Harry Belafonte, and Sidney Poitier, are those of less well-remembered figures such as Bricktop, Pearl Primus, Diana Sands, Nipsey Russell, the Nicholas Brothers, Stephen Burrows, and Donny Hathaway. Vintage Black Glamour and Vintage Black Glamour: Gentlemen’s Quarters (Rocket 88) are unique, sumptuous and revealing celebrations of the lives and indomitable spirit of black women and men of a previous era who continue to inspire to the present day. —Event page
