Society of Mannequins

 The Association of Mannequins

 

Our parent organization, the Association of Mannequins, was formed 78 years ago as an organization to assist Black Women who wanted to break into the fields of fashion and modeling.  They decided to draw attention to elegant, well groomed and accomplished Black Women by announcing and publicizing in Chicago's Black and White press those women they selected each year as the 10 Best Dressed Negro Women of Chicago.
