"From prim ponytails and pumps to afros and aviator glasses, African-American style from one decade to the next has always been stunning and inventive. Michael McCollom has pulled together an extensive collection of original photographs, all featuring black men and women looking their "best" in wonderfully original clothing, hairstyles and accessories from years gone by." "The photographs in this collection for the most part do not feature models or celebrities; these are ordinary people, looking fabulous-and chosen by themselves as their signature fashion moments from the past-as they pose for a friend's camera. Some of their outfits are zany, others are elegant; some hip, and others casual. Each photo is an honest snapshot of a particular time, place and personality; together, they form an extraordinary tribute to the boldness and ingenuity of black style throughout the decades.
