Parts of Fashion: Curating in Focus
FREE | Katie Murphy Amphitheatre
Colleen Hill, Sarah Byrd, Hilary Davidson, and Claire Calvert
Join us for a panel discussion that brings together two spring 2024 MFIT exhibitions: “Statement Sleeves,” curated by MFIT Curator of Costume and Accessories Colleen Hill, and “Untying the Bow,” organized by students in FIT’s Fashion and Textile Studies master’s degree program. Hill will be in conversation with FIT faculty member Sarah Byrd and graduate student Claire Calvert as they discuss the issues and processes of exhibitions that are focused on one part of a garment, such as sleeves, pockets, or bows. The panel will be moderated by Hilary Davidson, chair of Fashion and Textile Studies.
