The Washington Catwalk

Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post fashion editor Robin Givhan will give the Vivian R. Shaw lecture, in which Ms. Givhan will discuss the convergence of fashion, power, and politics.

Detroit native Robin Givhan received her Bachelor of Arts in English from Princeton University and a Masters of Science in journalism from the University of Michigan. Since 1995 she has been the fashion editor of the Washington Post where she covers the news, trends, and business of the international fashion industry. She also writes a weekly culture column. In 2009, she began covering Michelle Obama and the cultural and social shifts stirred by the first African American family in the White House and is the author of Michelle: Her First Year As First Lady, a joint project with the Washington Post. Following the lecture, Ms. Givhan will sign copies of her latest book on Mrs. Obama.

The lecture is cosponsored by the UM Women's Studies Department, the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, the Department of Communication Studies, and the Howard R. Marsh Center for the Study of Journalistic Performance, in collaboration with UMMA.
