Yves Saint Laurent + Halston: Fashioning the '70s offers a unique perspective on two of the best known fashion designers in modern history who defined the sexy and glamorous looks of the 1970s. The approximately 80 ensembles and 20 accessories drawn from The Museum at FITs extensive collection of pieces from both designers reflect the social, economic and political realities of their creators and the world at large.
