Cross-Pollination: ¡Moda Hoy!

Visit Today

A collaborative showcase between FIT and LASALLE College of the Arts, this exhibition draws inspiration from The Museum at FIT’s spring 2023 exhibition ¡Moda Hoy! Latin American and Latinx Fashion Design Today. Students from both fashion colleges engage in creative dialogues around the themes of Myth and Rituals, Beliefs and Economics of Care, and Activism and Resistance. Connecting the threads between Latin America, Singapore, and New York, these students bring to life fresh perspectives on our collective future. This thought-provoking exhibition celebrates the diversity in craftsmanship and individual identities and illuminates the boundless possibilities of our interconnected world.

The exhibition was curated by Allysa, Barnaba, and Dina Pritmani, seniors in the Art History and Museum Professions undergraduate program (AHMP) at FIT.

We are happy to partner with INNSiDE by Melia New York NoMad Hotel for this exhibition.
