Business jackets paired with Bermuda shorts, stylish sleepwear, pillow accessories, paper dresses, and contemporary designs were just some of the creative pieces worn at this year’s Black History Month Fashion Show.

The annual fashion show is one of the signature events in Oberlin’s Black History Month celebration. In addition to showcasing fashionable and creative clothing and accessories, the event provides participants with an opportunity to express and celebrate themselves and their beauty. This year’s show included models who prerecorded their moves for the camera and a live stream catwalk in Wilder Main.
