11 Sep Doing it in Vintage Black Style
Using rarely accessed photographic archives and private collections, inspired by her family history, Nichelle 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, but who rarely appeared in the same publications as their white counterparts.
Her two books Vintage Black Glamour and Vintage Black Glamour: Gentlemen’s Quarters celebrates the lives, indomitable spirit and innate style of celebrity men and women who were most often ignored by mainstream media.
These vintage black glamour style icons continue to influence all aspects of life and culture today.
