Hi, all! It’s been pretty busy here at FIT, with students and teachers working on final projects and papers. For that reason, and because FIT is closed from December 23-January 2, this will be a short post. After the holidays we will resume the schedule of having a long post at the beginning of the month and a short one mid-month.
Just in case you need ideas for things to do, here are some of our favorite websites for (inexpensive) goings on around the city:
To let you know what’s brewing here, I am already working on a long post about the history of the House of Balmain, starting with the man himself, and ending up with the current hot shot, Oliver Rousteing.
That will be out either January 20th, if I can get it all together, or February 3rd. It will be laid out much like the post I wrote on the House of Dior in November.
Denise and I are also working on another edition of Needles in the Stacks, our series of book reviews of the many (and I mean MANY) how-to books we have here in the FIT Library. We’re looking at books on embellishment techniques this time.
We’re still trying to sort out if this will be all embroidery and fabric manipulation, or if it will also include beading, LED trimmings, and whatever else we come across.
Feel free to make suggestions and we will take them. Here is the link to StyleCat, if you want to look up what we have here to make specific requests:
In the meantime, we wish you the best of every festive thing this holiday season! We look forward to chatting with you again in the new year.
