became one of a handful of African American models in the early 1970s
whose frames showed off the clothes of top designers in the European and
New York collections, appeared in fashion spreads for the likes of
Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, and broke new ground for African American
women in the industry. Iman, Beverly Johnson, and Pat Cleveland were all
Hardison's contemporaries. Eventually she went into partnership with
Smith, and in 1980 joined a start-up modeling agency as a booker. The
agency was called Click, and with its unusual roster of models "became
known for a more exotic, less traditional kind of beauty," noted a
Mirabella correspondent. Hardison's job as a booker involved teaming
members of Click's talent roster with clients--designers, magazines, ad
agencies-- looking for models. By 1981 she was head of Click's women's
division, in any agency its most powerful and lucrative department.
Ok just my generic search through my underground sites give me nothing.
I'm very disappointed. I guess books about black life aren't worthy to
leech. But luckily I have friends who leech all over the world. It will
take some time to get them all though.
