  • This location is shown only to members

  • The Museum at FIT, accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, is one of a select group of specialized fashion museums, including the Muse de la Mode, the Mode Museum, and the Museo de la Moda. For the 100,000 people who visit The Museum at FIT each year, we work to create exhibitions, programs, and publications that are both entertaining and educational. The mission of the Museum is to advance knowledge of fashion through exhibitions, programs and publications. Founded in 1969, the Museum was installed in the current building in 1974, and exhibitions began to be presented in 1975. Dr. Valerie Steele has been director of The Museum at FIT since 2003 and chief curator since 1997.


    We will visit Saturday (which is PWYW - Pay What You Wish at location). This is a medium grouping. Please travel light, bring water.  We meet at 1:00 pm (at entrance) Pay attention and stay with the group.

    Little Unknown History:

    Many people did know the dress warn on future President J.F. Kennedy was designed by an African American fashion designer. Some believed that it was omitted from history for a reason. However, Anne Cole Lowe was the designer of the signature dress displayed in museums. 


    This visit, FIT will display the history of the Black Fashion Designer.
