Fashion’s Fanciest Night Out

I nearly forgot! Amongst all the reference questions and magazine research today, I nearly forgot that this evening is the Met Gala! This year the party is in honor of Rei Kawakubo, one of our Word-Worthy Women. That guarantees that the red carpet for this event will display some unusual and challenging treasures, as well as the usual collection of brilliant near-misses. In order that we be able to discuss this together tomorrow, I bring back our red carpet bingo card. Stream it tonight, let’s snark about it tomorrow! (You can see it here, too. And here.)

(You can also read the Costume Institute’s conservator, Sarah Scaturro’s interview about the show here. She’s a grad of the FIT Museum Studies program in the Graduate Division.)

Fashion’s FIT Future

Guests judges from the Fashion Industry judge Senior Projects in the Great Hall on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 for the 2016 Senior Fashion Show.

Hurry up and come over! Today is that brief window: 11am-3pm, where the FIT Fashion Design graduating class’ work is on display for the public to take a look. The work is lined up in the John Reeves Great Hall, which is behind the Pomerantz Center and the Haft Auditorium on 28th street. You can read more about the 2017 Future of Fashion Show here.

Come take a look! I’ll try to get over there and write more about it later.

Magazine of the Week (again)

Hi, all!

I was on vacation last week, so rather than talk about a new magazine this week, I’m directing you back to the one from the end of our spring break. Good is a really interesting and well-thought-out title, plus the website behind it will give you lots and lots of food for thought. Here’s what I wrote about it.

Like a couple of other titles we have subscribed to recently (like Monocle and Delayed Gratification), Good has really colorful infographics. If you have to design any of these for your classes, these three titles are worth looking at.

Have a good week, and I’ll have more for you in a few days!
