The Roaring Twenties and the Swinging Sixties Opens
The School of Graduate Studies and The Museum at FIT present a virtual exhibition comparing the fashions of the ’20s and ’60s, both periods of significant crisis and change. Organized by students of FIT’s Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice MA program, The Roaring Twenties and the Swinging Sixties features 26 objects from the permanent collection of MFIT and fashion illustrations from FIT’s Gladys Marcus Library Special Collections and College Archives. It is supplemented with archival photographs that further demonstrate the parallels between the fashion of the two decades. For the first time, this student-led project is presented solely online, with the class working together remotely. View the exhibition

“ … As the world begins to emerge from the strictures of the pandemic, Mr. Roseberry, who only stepped into the house that Schiap built in 2019, may be becoming the breakout red carpet designer of choice." —The New York Times’ Vanessa Friedman hails Daniel Roseberry ’08, artistic director of Schiaparelli, for designing Beyoncé’s minidress for her historic night at the Grammys and Noah Cyrus’ “meme-inducing whipped cream cloud.”

Don’t Blush. It’s Nicole Windram

She’s a fashion director who can repurpose clothing as if performing a magic trick. She does the same for the designs in FIT’s student-run fashion and culture magazine, Blush.
