A note in today’s Women Wear Daily tells us that The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City is showing a new exhibition, “The Tailor’s Art.” It features everything from a man’s embroidered velvet suit circa 1785 to a leather ensemble from Roberto Cavalli’s 2003 collection.
“The show helps us to understand that tailoring has not changed much in the past 250 years” according to research curator Patricia Mears.
The show opened on May 23rd but FIT’s website apparently hasn’t caught up with that fact yet. Perhaps after the long holiday weekend they will update?
