Fashionable Fonds Found Here! Design Firm Archives at FIT Library Special Collections.
This online tour will highlight NYC design firms' archives that have been deposited in the FIT Library since the late 1950s. Join us to see truly beautiful renderings focusing on American women's fashion design of the twentieth century. Your hosts, Associate Professor Karen Trivette, MLS and her staff, will also discuss a recent award of a "Save America's Treasures" grant to preserve three of the 459 manuscript collections in the Special Collections' holdings. The Save America's Treasures project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
