Recap: Spring 2012 AAS Fashion Design Exhibit

Of course, I will begin my post with saying that we should all give a warm round of applause to all the graduating fashion design students! What an amazing  job they did in last month’s exhibit inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli!

For those who are unaware – Elsa Schiaparelli’s is a fashion legend. Elsa Schiaparelli was a 1930’s and 40’s Italian fashion designer. She greatly impacted fashion with her unique style and art form.

Just in case you missed it – here are some images from the exhibit.  Each designer had a mission related to the back story which was, “Get inside Elsa Schiaparelli’s head as a designer, who was she in her world culture, what she was saying through her innovative design and quirky aesthetic, how she was inspired by her close collaborations with contemporary fine artists.”

Now Showing at FIT: Hue Color Tint Shade

Hue Color Tint Shade is an exhibit designed by students in the first year of the Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design program at FIT and explores the topic of color as a selling tool.

What brings you into a store? The window displays which catch your attention! And, color! And that is exactly what this exhibition  features.

The Process:
Teams of two were created and assigned a pantone color and an accessory item. They were then asked to research the meaning, psychology, and cultural influences related to their color and conceptualize a design for a window display using a mannequin. The end result  is this amazing exhibit running through April 20th, 2012 in the Pomerantz Art and Design Center (D-building) lobby. This exhibit is open to the public.

Not only are there different colors but, each mannequin is a representation of each team’s imagination and creativity. It is one of the most amazing things I have seen here while interning at FIT. You must check it out and tell me what you think in the comment box below.


On Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design:

This program provides an in-depth, interdisciplinary education that prepares you to create exhibits and presentations from conceptualization through fabrication. In courses taught by professional designers with extensive experience, you’ll learn to use a variety of materials and techniques, including props, electronic media, and lighting.
