THE GIRL FROM 7TH AVENUE – PAT CLEVELAND & THE RUNWAY REVOLUTION
Antonio’s Closet Productions Announces Opening of:
“The Girl From 7th Avenue” – Pat Cleveland and the Runway Revolution”.
Pioneering model Pat Cleveland is featured in the latest production of Antonio’s Closet Productions.
Pat partied with Andy Warhol, lived with Karl Lagerfeld, inspired Salvador Dalí, refused Muhammed Ali’s proposal, and took on the fashion industry for not representing black models on the cover of magazines and on the runway in the early 70s… @Pat Cleveland, the first black supermodel, tells her story, in her own words, in this illustrated documentary “The Girl From 7th Avenue” – Pat Cleveland and the Runway Revolution.
With more than 2,000 hand-painted watercolors by Antonio Contreras, songs performed by Pat Cleveland, and music by Maurice Lynch and music by One A (aka Gehno Aviance), this documentary is currently the buzz on the fashion runways worldwide. World premiere this July 30th at the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival. The European premiere will be held in December in Paris at Diane Pernet’s A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival.
