A new look at fashion

New York City is in fashion this week, with with 100s of designers debuting their latest threads in Bryant Park. If you can't get in the tents, though, don't worry, a fashion exhibit for all is available at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Through April, American Beauty: Aesthetics and Innovation in Fashion at the FIT museum explores the "philosophy of beauty" and examines how technical construction comes together with creativity to build a unique look. The exhibit features the works from designers from the late 1910s to the rising stars of the today's fashion industry.


"The garments in American Beauty are connected by one overriding criterion: They have all been created by designers who utilized the craft of dressmaking as the point of departure to create beautiful, wearable objects," said Patricia Mears, deputy director of The Museum at FIT. "This focus on construction further illustrates that each designer's method of attaining innovative shapes and forms could only have come about because craft was the central focus of the creative process. While this exhibition most definitely is not a retrospective, the range of clothing types included in American Beauty is comprehensive in that it includes both high- and low-priced fashion from the past 100 years of American fashion."

Check out more of American Beauty at the online exhibition.
