I’ve never forgotten seeing the Fortuny show way back when. Thank you so much!

Love that place. Have seen many great shows. Cher’s with all the Bob Mackie’s outfits for her were astounding in scope and variety…

I visited FIT when I was researching Chanel for a book back in 1990. I was very impressed with both the collection and the study facilities.

I try to go to as many lectures and events as I can. Even though it’s not always my area of expertise, it’s always informative. I come away with a least one idea to explore. I am so glad that I live near this great resource.

Throwback to the time I visited the FIT Museum. This was when they had the fairytale exhibit up and these outfits were inspired by The Little Mermaid 🐠🔮 Truly inspiring! #fitmuseum #fashionista #fashion #fit #fairytale #fashionexhibit #mymfit
