The Bible has something for everyone, even fashionistas.
The idea of wearing your best clothes, especially hats, to church to honor God is a Christian tradition based on Scripture that is especially strong in the African-American church.
Although casual clothing is the norm for many churchgoers today, “Sunday’s Best: A Gospel Affair” provided many women from local churches a Sunday celebration of their stylish chapeaus.
“We wanted to celebrate women and hats, gospel and food,” said Mattie Stevenson, co-founder of Above and Beyond Event Planners, the coordinators of Sunday’s gathering. The event, held at 550 Enterprises on Genesee Street, attracted about 100 women wearing hats of all styles.
