February is just two days away, and the 1st day of the 2nd month is not only the start of Black History Month but New York Fashion Week. (Think they'll have more models of color on the runways? Unlikely!) Anyway, we can think of no better way to simultaneously celebrate the blessed events and introduce a new feature than by combining the two in the form of what we're calling "Past Fashion". The idea behind the feature is to present a monthly gallery of everything from your most over-the-top dance recital outfits to your most adorable, official grade-school photographs. But before you start sending in Polaroids of that time in the 8th grade when you wore white pancake makeup, heed our call for our inaugural "issue" of Past Fashion, for which we'll focus on the best (and worst!) of black (female) hairstyles..."political" and otherwise.
