New York- clearly I take FITs museum for granted. I'm in my last year
there and have only been in the museum once. Fashion and Politics," a
new exhibit opening July 7 at the Museum at FIT, illustrates the interplay
of fashion trends and political movements with more than 100 costumes
and accessories. Curator Jennifer Farley says its organizers approached
the topic with a broad scope. Organized chronologically, the show begins
in the 19th century with a pair of patriotic pieces: an 1889 costume bearing
an American Flag motif and Catherine Malandrino's Flag Dress, which debuted
in 2001 after 9-11, and was recently reissued in response to last fall's Presidential
campaign. Go check it out.
