“Her work was overwhelmingly pretty," said Elizabeth Way, assistant curator of costume at The Museum of FIT, quoted in a New Yorker profile of groundbreaking Black fashion designer Ann Lowe. "It wasn’t radical, or meant to be. Even in the sixties, she was still inspired by the nineteenth century, and by a nostalgic ideal of femininity. Yet I also think it’s important to appreciate what breathtaking courage she had.”
