Simply the most fashionable museum in NYC, since it’s within the world-famous Fashion Institute of Technology, which has trained many world-class designers.
There are rotating exhibits which focus on a theme, such as clothing influenced by nature, a single designer such as Yves. St. Laurent, item of clothing, such as lingerie, or a period of fashion, such as the Victorian era, or even a color.
There are also FREE exhibits showcasing student talent. The museum also has one of the largest collections of fashion photography and textiles in the world.
- Seventh Ave. at 27th St., at the edge of the NYC Garment Center.
- Open Tues – Fri Noon – 8pm, Saturday 10am – 5pm. Closed on Legal holidays.
