"Black Fashion Designers"
examines the impact of African American and African designers on the fashion industry.
Drawing exclusively from The Museum at FIT’s permanent collection, the exhibition features
approximately 70 fashion objects that illustrate the individual styles of more than 30 designers,
placing them within a wider fashion context.
To be held December 2016 – May 2017

"Force of Nature"
Force of Nature is a unique exhibition that explores how the beauty and complexity of nature
have inspired fashion designers for centuries. More than a survey of decorative flora and fauna,

"Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme"
Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme examines high fashion inspired by clothing made for survival
in the most inhospitable environments on earth and beyond. Today’s luxurious parkas trace their roots
to the “heroic era” of polar navigation (1890 to 1922), while down-filled “puffer” coats and backpacks
were originally perfected for extreme mountain climbing in the mid-twentieth century. Experimental,
high tech materials made for exploration to otherworldly realms — such as neoprene (deep sea)
and Mylar (outer space) — made their way onto the runway.
To be held September 15, 2017 – January 6, 2018

To be held December 5, 2017 – May, 2018

signs of wear, will highlight the aberrant beauty in flawed objects.

"Past Is Present: Revival Jewelry"

of jewelry history through about 70 objects — both ancient and revival.
