Drawing from its permanent collection, the Museum at FIT presents an exhibition that brings to light the issues of diversity within the fashion industry by celebrating black designers and models and their important contributions. Roughly 75 pieces from 60 designers will be on display, with some items dating back to the 1950s. Mid-century evening dresses by Anne Lowe and vintage 1980s pieces from Patrick Kelly are presented alongside items from current designers like Maki Oh, Stephen Burrows and Charles Harbison.
