“Fabric In Fashion exhibition” at The Museum at FIT in New York

Textile is the starting point and the key material of the fashion industry. Over the past 250 years, its composition and structure have altered appreciably. Fabric in Fashion exhibition is devoted to four of the most common fibers: silk, cotton, wool and synthetics. The exposition of more than 65 items of clothing and accessories – from mid-XIII century silk organza dresses up to wool coats of the 1960s and polyester and recycled fabrics designs – demonstrate the history and evolution of the fabrics: the way technical processing of textiles influenced the cut and the silhouette and the way mixing of natural and artificial fabrics practically destroyed the class affiliation.

Exhibition runs till May 4, 2019

Address: Seventh Avenue at 27 Street, New York City 10001-5992
