Kobe Fashion Museum, Japan
Dr. Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at FIT, guest curated
an exhibition at the Kobe Fashion Museum, Treasures of Fashion ― the aesthetic sense of Valerie Steele. For this exhibition, Steele selected approximately 150 items from the collection
of the Kobe Fashion Museum, including rococo-style Western dresses dating from the
18th century to modern times, as well as fashion photographs, to shine a spotlight
on their collection from a new perspective.
In celebration of The Museum at FIT’s 50th anniversary in 2019, we gathered and shared stories of visitors’ favorite MFIT exhibitions, events, and experiences.
