My next guest was born in Washington but raised in Durham, North Carolina and is a HBCU graduate of North Carolina Central University. This is where his journey to become a Legendary Style Icon and former Creative Director of Vogue Magazine. His new memoir, THE CHIFFON TRENCHES, offers a candid look at the who’s who of the last fifty years of fashion. He is on the show to discuss his engaging memoir that is told with raw honesty the story of how he not only survived the brutal “style” landscape but thrived—despite racism, illicit rumors, and all the other challenges of this notoriously cutthroat industry—to become one of the most renowned voices and faces in fashion.
