CAAM PRESENTS ITS 8TH ANNUAL EASTER CELEBRATION ‘HAUTE COUTURE WITH HATITUDE’

The California African American Museum (CAAM) presents its 8th annual spring extravaganza, “Haute Couture With Hatitude”  during Target Sundays at CAAM, April 1, 2012 beginning at 11a.m. - 5 p.m.  Co-hosted by  actress and singer Dawnn Lewis and Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter, the program will showcase fashion styles created by designer Kenneth “K Bobby” Edgar and CAAM’s annual hat competition.

CAAM’s galleries open at 11 a.m. and the Target Sundays program begins at 1 p.m.  Co-host Dawnn Lewis is most know for her role on the hit sitcom, “A Different World.” Lewis also is a Grammy Award-winning singer and a multiple ASCAP & BMI Award-winning songwriter.  The day’s activities will include a terrific lineup of live performances by D’Lai, a comedian who has taken the comedy scene by storm and has won some of the nation’s biggest African American comedy competitions; Fine Chynah, a mega girl group that includes three lead singers; and versatile singer Joram Dugay.  The fashion show segment will be presented by Kenneth “K Bobby” Edgar, a seasoned designer, hair stylist and dressmaker.    Remember to bring your special hat for the annual “Hatitude” competition, but you have to bring it with “Hatitude!”  The competition is open to men, women and children. If you don’t have a special hat to bring, sit down at the unique art workshop held by local artist Teresa Tolliver and design your own hat. 

The art workshop starts at noon and all supplies are provided by CAAM.  There will be special prizes presented to the winners of the hat competition categories!

Free and open to the public, CAAM is located at 600 State Drive, Exposition Park, Los Angeles, 90037. For more information on  CAAM visit www.caamusuem.org and RSVP at (213) 744-2024.  Parking is $10, located on Figueroa and 39th streets.
