'The Will To Adorn': What We Wear And What It Says About Us

Guests

Robin Givhan, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and fashion critic
Diana Baird N'Diaye, cultural specialist and curator, Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage

The fashion choices we make can say a lot about how we see ourselves, and can affect how others see us. The 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival includes a program called "The Will to Adorn," which explores the ways African Americans culture is shaped by fashion.
