Summary
This exhibition explores FIT founder Max Meyer's impact on the fashion industry through his role at Abraham Beller and Company, a women's clothing manufacturer in NYC. It highlights the connection between the fashion industry and FIT, showcased by significant donations that built the Library's Special Collections and College Archives. Meyer's gift of over 8,000 Beller company sketches depicting renowned Paris couture from 1915-1929 are featured, and garments from the Fashion & Textile Studies collection were conserved by students and alumni.
Also presented are contemporary art and fashion vignettes by FIT alumna and professor emerita Daria Dorosh, Ph.D. The exhibition emphasizes Meyer's lasting influence on modern artists and the garment industry, aligning with celebrating the College's 80th anniversary.
