March 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

The FIDM Museum will host Fashion Historian and Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree Shelby Ivey Christie on the next Collection Conversation. To mark the launch of the FIDM Museum’s new catalogue Sporting Fashion: Outdoor Girls 1800 to 1960, Christie will join Curator Kevin Jones to discuss tennis star Althea Gibson, the first Black woman to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated and TIME magazines. Gibson changed the way female tennis players dressed on court, and had a lasting impact on future athletes and fashion icons like Serena Williams.
