FIT Museum EXHIBITION OPENING!
Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color was OUT OF THIS WORLD !
It was an extravagant affair, with models and industry professionals decked out in PINK from head to toe!
FIT’s exhibition is organized by the museum’s director and chief curator, Dr. Valerie Steele. Pink features approximately 80 ensembles from the 18th century to the present, with examples by designers and brands such as Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Alessandro Michele of Gucci, Jeremy Scott of Moschino, and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons.
The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color corrects popular misconceptions, encourages viewers to question clichés and received opinion, and demonstrates that “It is society that ‘makes’ color, defines it, gives it meaning” — to quote the great color historian Michel Pastoureau. —-Source www.fitnyc.edu
