Why couldn’t I have been able to wear these ensembles! Unbelievable fashions that really get people going.


Sorry about the difference in some size pics, these were obtained on-line.

    I have hundreds and hundreds of these Eleganza ads and all still intact in the original magazines, mostly Ebonys. Eleganza was THE premier pimp soul brand of the 60s and 70s. I’ve never seen a dud yet.

    So if I was there you would let me go thru these mags with gloves on of course!? When I see these ads it makes me wish I could have been able to wear these fashions as well. Remember Allee, things happen when you wear eleganza.

    I did go thru the Bubbles stuff and was absolutely floored! Amazing, amazing stuff and I went batty looking thru all her work! Tell her I said my jaw is still on the floor. I’m AM NOT an artist but she is inspiring me to buy some blank canvas and give it a go. I had one idea called “afro bee-hive” and am dying to bring it to life.
