Abstract:

Fashion designer Stephen Burrows was born on September 15, 1943, in Newark, New Jersey. He graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City in 1966. In 1969, Burrows was hired to work at the Henri Bendel department store, where he was offered his own boutique, Stephen Burrows World. In 1973, he left Henri Bendel and founded Burrows, Inc., opening up shop on New York’s Seventh Avenue. That same year, Burrows was invited to show his clothes on the runway of Versailles, France, and became the first African American designer to gain international fame. In 1977, Burrows returned to Henri Bendel and joined Pat Tennant, Inc., but left again in 1982. In 1993, he took residence, once more, in Bendel’s, and in 2002, reopened Stephen Burrows World. His honors include three Coty American Fashion Critics’ Awards and the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Board of Directors Special Tribute Award.
