“Supermodel and advocate Bethann Hardison joins SAM’s Deputy Director of Art Chiyo Ishikawa for a discussion on the changing roles of racial diversity in the fashion industry in conjunction with the exhibition, Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style.

Hardison will discuss a career’s worth of experience working as a model, agent, and activist, including her experiences working with top tier designers both in the US and abroad. She and Ishikawa will also discuss Yves Saint Laurent’s role in bringing awareness to the representation of people of color within the industry and how the same issues pervade in contemporary society.”
