Fashion For Free . . .


If you're ever craving a fashion fix, I'd suggest you stop by The Museum at FIT. Because let's be honest, after a certain number of visits the sales women at Valentino start to catch on that you're not really going to buy that gown. At the Museum, you'll never feel pressure to purchase, since you can't. Truly New York on a dime. Completely free of admission and open to the public, I cannot think of an easier or more relaxed way to admire collections of stunning garments both old and new. And if you keep your eyes open, you might even see the next Alexander Wang or Marc Jacobs - the Fashion Institute of Technology's students roam throughout the gallery, taking notes and gathering inspiration from the greats.

The Museum is currently showing three exhibits:

Youthquake!
The 1960s Fashion Revolution
Closing April 7, 2012

Impact
50 Years of the Council of Fashion Designers of America
Closing April 17, 2012

Fashion, A-Z
Highlights from the Collection of The Museum at FIT, Part One
Closing May 8, 2012

Here are a few jaw droppers from Impact, my favorite exhibit, including a 2012 Oscar de la Renta gown that I pretty much died for right there in the gallery.
