Gladys Marcus Library Featured in the September 2009 Issue of Arena Korea

Translation of the article:
"The Fashion Institute of Technology's Gladys Marcus Library is not your regular school library. Vast and impressive fashion related archives and diverse informative resources are available for students and visitors. Over several decades, the FIT library has accumulated diverse resources such as issues of Vogue magazine from 1934 to the present, issues of Harper's Bazaar, numerous designer "look" books, and fashion forecasting books. The part of the FIT library known as the Special Collections is often compared with the V & A museum in London which is known for its outstanding fashion related archives. Special Collections includes over 3,000 books of fashion illustrations along with 200 important sketches and a sartorial book from the 1860s. One of the most notable resources of the library is the signed Red Book of Valentino which weighs about 40 pounds. The illustrations of Calvin Klein, one of the many notable FIT graduates, is also part of the library's collection."

Arena Korea is an upscale men's magazine which features articles on fashion, entertainment, food, movies, fitness, sex, music, toys, and books.
