The Mercyhurst University Fashion Council and Fashion Merchandising Department present a showing of Kate Novack’s documentary about André Leon Talley. Her intimate portrait, The Gospel According to André, takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to becoming one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times. It explores connections between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. The film will be shown Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Mercyhurst’s Walker Recital Hall. It is free and open to the public.
