Museum at FIT
Collections of clothing, textiles, and accessories can be seen in the Museum at FIT, which started out in 1969 as the Design Laboratory.
Initially using a collection on long-term loan from the Brooklyn Museum of Art, it began to present shows in the 1970s. Over time, it built up its own collection and gained thousands of textiles and other fashion-related items. The Board of Governors at FIT changed the institution’s name to The Museum at FIT in 1993 after understanding the importance of the Design Laboratory’s collections and exhibitions. The American Association of Museums granted membership to the museum in 2012.
More than 50,000 items of clothing and jewelry from the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries are now part of the museum’s permanent collection.There is a representation of important designers including Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, and Adrian. The museum’s collection strategy highlights modern innovative fashion and focuses on clothes, jewelry, fabrics, and visual elements that are both visually and historically relevant.
The museum contains three galleries. Special exhibitions are shown at the gallery on the lower level. About 200 historically as well as artistically significant items from the museum’s permanent collection are on display in the Fashion and Textile History Gallery on the first floor. The main floor’s Gallery FIT, which is devoted to student and faculty exhibitions, is also housed there.
