What did Madame C J Walker wear?
Madam C. J. Walker dressed in the fashions of the day. As a poor washerwoman in St. Louis during the late 19th century, she dressed very modestly and could not afford many clothes. After she became wealthy, her clothes often were custom-designed. She had fur coats and other fashionable clothing. Photos of Madam Walker appear in On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C. J. Walker by A'Lelia Bundles.
