Uniformity

Wednesday, July 20 | 10:30 am
Wednesday, August 17 | 10:30 am

Fashion & Textile History Gallery

Uniformity explores the dynamic history behind a variety of uniforms, considering both their social role and their influence on high fashion. The exhibition is organized thematically to focus on four categories of uniforms: military, work, school, and sports. Uniformity includes over 70 objects from The Museum at FIT’s permanent collection, many of which have never been on view before.

Talk and Tours begin in the museum lobby. Reservations are required.
