Richmond Heights Branch

Meeting Room A+B (50)

Learn about the fascinating history behind this local fashion designer.

Amanda Wicker (1894-1987) moved to Cleveland in 1924 with not much more than her skills as a dressmaker. With a single student enrolled, she began the Clarke School of Dressmaking and Fashion Design in her home on Cedar Avenue in Cleveland’s Fairfax neighborhood. For the following six decades, she established herself as the preeminent fashion teacher and mentor in the predominantly African American Fairfax neighborhood. Join the Cleveland History Center to learn about Amanda Wicker’s incredible legacy, in the fashion world and beyond.
