I had not visited the Museum at FIT in a while, and I was glad I did! A wonderful exhibit which is ending on April 15th dedicated to Paris fashion between 1957-1968 is a must see! I was so very impressed with this exhibit, wish it was running for a bit longer. This museum is free to all which is just fabulous, especially those studying fashion.
Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 highlights one of the most groundbreaking time periods in fashion history. While many books and exhibitions about this era position London as the center of innovative, youth-oriented design, this limited perspective overlooks the significant role that Paris continued to play in the fashion industry. Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 examines the combined influence of French haute couture, ready-to-wear, and popular culture during this era, with particular emphasis on how fashion was perceived and promoted by the American fashion press. All objects on view were selected from The Museum at FIT’s permanent collection of more than 50,000 objects.
