RetroSpective Exhibit at The Museum at FIT

The Museum at FIT is currently showing an exhibition that examines the relationship between fashion and its own history. The exhibit is called RetroSpective, and it is on view at The Museum of FIT in New York City until November 16, 2013.

RetroSpective features examples from revivals of 1940s fashion, particularly from the 1970s, as well as designer adaptions of the styles popular in the 1950s and 1960s. The exhibition concludes with fashions that reference the last two decades of the twentieth century.
