Beyond Rebellion: Fashioning the Biker Jacket examines high fashion interpretations of the black leather motorcycle jacket. Organized by graduate students in FIT’s Fashion and Textile Studies program, the exhibition explores the many forms this utilitarian garment has taken, from countercultural wardrobe staple to avant-garde statement piece. The exhibition features garments from labels such as Comme des Garcons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rick Owens, and Gianni Versace, emphasizing the biker jacket's continuing influence on high fashion.

FIT Media Club
January 25, 2014 - February 8, 2014
Big Data – Telling Human Stories Through Numbers explored the world of data, information, and numbers through artistic vision. The works included were a response to the changing world of the Information Age that we are living in. Instead of using the power of information for political or business-oriented goals, designers and artists in this exhibition used results of their quantitative research to tell the their stories.
The Media Design Club at FIT (MDC) was established in 2009 by Prof. C. J. Yeh from the Communication Design Department. It brings together students interested in digital media together outside of the traditional classroom setting. Currently, MDC has over 200 members from Communication Design (AAS), Graphic Design (BFA), Advertising Design (BFA), Computer Graphics (BFA), and Illustration (AAS) programs. It is one of the most active student clubs at FIT.
