Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced is a new exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York which showcases the pioneering designer's innovative work from the 1970s. The exhibit features several original pieces by Burrows, along with sketches and photographs of the designer's work. Stephen Burrows made fashion history in the 1970s: he was the first African-American designer to win a Coty Award and have his own branded boutique in Henri Bendel. He also dressed superstars like Cher and Diana Ross and participated in the iconic 1973 fashion show at Versailles featuring a battle royale between American and French designers. The show was recently immortalized in the documentary, Versailles '73.
