Paris Refashioned, 1957 - 1968
Friday, September 27
Join Colleen Hill, curator of costume and accessories at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (MFIT), in a presentation of one of the most groundbreaking periods in fashion history, the 1960s. From the early designs of Yves Saint Laurent to the popularity of ready-to-wear fashions by Emmanuelle Khanh, fashion of the 1960s traces the combined influence of French haute couture, ready-to-wear, and popular culture during this era. Hill holds an MA in Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice from FIT and is currently a PhD student at London College of Fashion. Since joining MFIT in 2006, Hill has curated more than a dozen exhibitions, including Exhibitionism: 50 Years of The Museum at FIT (2019) and Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968 (2017). She has also authored or co-authored six books on fashion and contributed to numerous publications. Parisian fashion is highly encouraged!
