HUE THINKS ABOUT BEGINNINGS AND BECOMES CHOKED UP WITH NOSTALGIA

Hue is thinking about beginnings.  The beginnings of the Fashion Institute of Technology, for example:

Good old FIT

FIT's Marvin Feldman Center, in progress

 

The above photograph actually represents a second beginning for FIT: In 1958, the college broke ground on West 27th Street, where it remains today.  However, the college got its first start in the top two floors of the High School of Needle Trades, two blocks south, on 25th Street, as seen in this undated photograph (probably from the 1940s):

Central Needle Trades High School

Beginnings often arouse such hope, yet they can also inspire anxiety.  How will the new enterprise turn out?  Will it flourish, or languish? The suspense is killing us.

This blog, Hue Too, began as Hue, FIT’s faboo alumni magazine.  But Hue Too will go beyond Hue, reaching for content into every corner of every aspect of the college, its alumni, and the various industries it serves, and providing it in a fresh, spontaneous, immediate…well, bloggy way.

That’s a *lot* of ground to cover.

So let’s begin.
