Hosted by award-winning author and television producer Susan Fales-Hill, the series features one of a kind, in-depth interviews with groundbreaking artists and thinkers who have shaped the cultural landscape. Cleveland will discuss the world of fashion today and tell anecdotes from her new memoir, Walking With The Muses.
Born in Harlem to an African-American artist and a white jazz saxophonist, Cleveland conquered the fashion world, serving as inspiration and muse to some of the 20th century’s most legendary figures: Halston, Vreeland, Warren Beatty, Stephen Burrows. She was part of the group of African-American models who revolutionized the staid cat walks of Paris couture in the legendary fashion show at Versailles in 1973.
