Last Sunday, the legendary Sheryl Lee Ralph wore a custom jumpsuit from Harbison Studio as she sang the Black National Anthem,“Lift Every Voice and Sing,” a first, during Super Bowl LVII, The stunning red and black one-piece was designed by the designer Charles Harbison. It was an off-the-shoulder design punctuated by gold buttons, with blouson sleeves and a long luxe train. 

"Sheryl is a modern Superwoman and I wanted to make a look that was representative of that, as well as the occasion," shared the designer. "I think we achieved that. Sheryl's team reached out to us by phone while I was on my way home from the studio. It was like hearing the voice of god on speakerphone. I was so inspired that I pulled over and immediately sketched the initial design on my iPhone. It was full steam ahead from there."

Harbison provided EBONY with the original sketch of his Super Bowl design for the Abbott Elementary star. Check it out below.
