A program for a fashion show held on October 13th, 1963, at Detroit's Latin Quarter, a theater and night club on East Grand Boulevard. The show was organized by "Nationally known Custom Milliner and Dress Designer LaTrelle Powers, and featured African-American models demonstrating various examples of Powers' dresses, coats, pants, and hats for the audience. The program is filled with illustrations of everyone involved in the event, as well as numerous advertisements for local black businesses and congratulations to participating models from their families. A neat record of this community fashion event in Civil Rights-era Detroit.
