Museum @ FIT

What a neighborhood gem I have found!! After countless times exiting the subway on 28th and 7th Ave, and walking past the Museum at FIT, I finally made the long journey down the street to check it out this past Saturday. This is a great museum if you want to grab a little culture, are fascinated by fashion, and don't have time to spend all afternoon at one of NYC's larger museum monstrosities. I took in two exhibits: one about how color has played a role in fashion over the last two hundred or so years (the black Halston is forever burned into my brain. Gorgeous), and the other is a collection of garments from Ralph Rucci (amazing craftsmanship coupled with truly modern design). It took me about an hour or so to get through both exhibits, and I am totally one of those people who reads everything. The collections rotate fairly often so there always seems to be something new. Oh ya, and best of is FREE.
