Join The Museum at FIT for a screening of Straight/Curve, a new documentary that examines the body image crisis. Ninety percent of women and young girls say that they feel unrepresented in the fashion industry and that the imagery they consume daily makes them feel “disgusting” and “less than.” The film showcases fashion leaders who are fighting for more diversity of size, race, and age. After the screening, director Jenny McQuaile and Meredith Rollins, editor in chief of Redbook magazine, will discuss topics addressed in Straight/Curve.

All Fashion Culture events are free, but registration is required; register online here, call (212) 217-4585, or email museuminfo@fitnyc.edu.
