WWD: The Fashion and Race Database Wants to Correct the Mis-Education of Fashion

New-to-Me, from WWD: The Fashion and Race Database Wants to Correct the Mis-Education of Fashion. “Born in 2017, the result of collecting scarce and scattered materials for the Fashion and Race course [Kimberly M.] Jenkins created and was teaching at Parsons School of Design, The Fashion and Race Database culls and curates articles (scholarly and otherwise), books, profiles, images and other relevant content that deals with ‘thorny’ topics, as Jenkins notes, like ‘colorism, cultural misappropriation and where the construct of race comes from and how it impacts beauty, culture, discrimination in retail.’ Organized into six sections, the database has a library of content addressing the aforementioned matters, particularly as they pertain to fashion.”
