His skill landed him a job in the millinery department and, in a few years was designing for the store under his own label. After 14 years he moved to New York and worked with numerous fashion designers, developing an impressive clientele of Hollywood stars. Eason was known for producing all types of hats to fit every type of face. His most famous creation was Faye Dunaway’s beret in 1968’s Bonnie and Clyde. A green sequin is an Eason signature and rides on the outside of the crown on each of his hats.

    Eunice Johnson founded the Ebony Fashion Fair (EFF) in 1958. Johnson was co-owner, with her husband, of Chicago-based Johnson Publishing Company, the publisher of Ebony Magazine. The annual fashion show featured male and female models of mostly African-American descent modeling fashions from top European designers such as Yves St Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, Pierre Cardin, Paco Rabanne, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino, and Emanuel Ungaro. Johnson's aim was to bring high fashion couture to the African-American woman who often didn't have access to the best shops.
       
    Many African-American fashion designers got their start with the show including Stephen Burrows, Patrick Kelly, and Willi Smith. The EFF ended in 2009 after the death of Eunice Johnson. Since her passing, Johnson Publishing has been gradually deaccessioning the fashion archive. This collection from Madge includes some of the last pieces that will be made available.
