This bag was used in an Ebony Fashion Fair show.
Missoni is a high-end Italian fashion house based in Varese, and known for its colorful knitwear designs. The company was founded by Ottavio ("Tai") and Rosita Missoni in 1953.
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.
