“A New Frontier in Fashion Information Delivery and Digital Collaboration: André Studios Fashion Drawings & Sketches in the Collections of FIT and the New York Public Library”
This digitized collection of thousands of fashion drawings and sketches produced by André Fashion Studios between 1930 and 1941 is the result of a partnership between the Picture Collection of The New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Special Collections & FIT Archives of the Fashion Institute of Technology Library. The partners aimed to virtually unite a collection of spectacular quality and historical significance that is physically divided among the two institutions and, as an equally important goal, to leverage open-source technologies to create a prototype of a fashion information and image portal that would provide access to costume and fashion-related resources held by various New York City educational and cultural heritage institutions http://andrestudios.nypl.org/project
This is truly a METRO-funded, collaborative digitization project success story; the NYPL and FIT project personnel would like to share it with you.
After the Program, in addition to the Social, you may also enjoy the current Museum at FIT exhibition, which is open until 8:00 pm: Fashion, A-Z: Highlights from the Collection of the Museum at FIT, Part One http://fitnyc.edu/11600.asp No food or drink is allowed in the galleries.
