Willi Smith for Digits Fall 1972 Sportswear Collection

Designer Willi Smith was one of the first Black designers to have a successful career in the American fashion industry. His street-style fashions were often inspired by New York City dwellers' daily lives. Smith began his career in the garment industry as a designer for junior sportswear brand Digits. For Smith fashion was a family affair. His sister and muse Doris "Toukie" Smith poses in his 1972 fall junior sportswear collection for Digits near Herald Square Park in New York on April 26, 1972.

Our art prints are produced on acid-free archival matte paper using archival inks. All art prints include a 1" white border around the image to allow for future framing and matting, if desired.
