#blackhistorymonth Fashion Spotlight: @patcleveland was the first black "supermodel." She was told by Eileen Ford of Ford Models at age 16 that they have very few colored girls in the agency because there is no work for them and the only reason she chose her is because she was recommended by designer Oleg Cassini.  Eileen went on to say that she didn't think Pat would ever make it in the modeling business.  Clearly she was wrong.  Pat went on to be one of fashions most prolific models and as Andre Leon Tally described her in his 2003 memoir A.L.T. A Memoir, the first black supermodel, the Josephine Baker of the international runways.  She has such a rich history in modeling with all the greats including Karl Lagerfield when he was designing for Chloe.  Cleveland has graced the runways (and print) as late as 2016.  She wrote a book, Walking with the Muses: A Memoir, about her early life in Harlem and her career in the fashion industry.  #blackhistorymonth #patcleveland #supermodel #fashion #runway #print #blackisbeautiful #blackexcellence #blackroyalty

Pat Cleveland began her career as a model in 1966 after Carrie Donovan, an assistant editor at Vogue noticed her style on a subway platform while on her way to class. Putting her aspirations to be a fashion designer on hold, she traveled as a model with the Ebony Fashion Fair tour, and was soon being photographed by Irving Penn, Richard Avedon and Andy Warhol + briefly becoming a muse to Salvador Dalí. She made her first appearance in Vogue in June, 1970, and that same year she appeared in the very first issue of Essence magazine. Frustrated with the racist attitudes toward black models, she relocated to Paris in 1971, and became a house model for Karl Lagerfeld, who was then the head designer at Chloé. During the 1970’s she modeled for Yves St. Laurent, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Thierry Mugler, Diane Von Furstenberg and Christian Dior, vowing not to return to the States until a black model appeared on the cover of American Vogue. After Beverly Johnson became the first black model to appear on the cover in 1974, she returned to the United States and continued her career, appearing on the cover of GQ, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, Essence, Harper’s and Interview, among others. Taking a break to raise her two children, she returned to modeling in 1995 and in 2015 returned to New York Fashion Week, walking the runway for Zac Posen. In 2016 her book, Walking With The Muses: A Memoir was published, which covers her early life in Harlem and her career in the fashion industry. #blackhistorymonth #blackmodel #patcleveland #legend  #tbt #blackgirlmagic

Appassionata di moda da sempre, mai modaiola. Parlo di quello che sta dietro all'abito, l'estro i tessuti il taglio, la façon, lo studio. Per la festa dei 18 anni perseguitai una zia amatissima che aveva una ditta di confezioni costringendola  a replicare, adattandolo a me, un abito che Versace aveva disegnato per Tina Turner. 18 anni. Una moda che poi più.  Le modelle vestite per le sfilate nello show room di mio padre. Il powersuit di Armani, le architetture di Ferré e l'etnico rigoroso di Krizia.  Pat Cleveland.  I capelli cotonati con lo zucchero di Claudia Schiffer.  Azzedine Alaya e i vestiti che erano sculture.  Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, il futuro e la follia ragionata. "Moda" e "Donna" sotto la direzione della Bignardi. Una sconfinata giovinezza. Per questo, sorrido mentre un po' mi commuovo davanti a questa vetrina. C'è tutta una vita lì.  E Versace per me sarà sempre Gianni. #gianniversace #versace #armani #gianfrancoferre #krizia #patcleveland #moda #fashion #couture #tinaturner #milano #showroom #azzedinealaya #jeanpaulgaultier #viviennewestwood #livethelifeyoulove #instafashion #instacouture #igermilano #larinascente
