Men’s Health (September issue) interviewed Christopher Serluco, adjunct instructor, Fashion Business Management, about ways to wear the perennial military trend. “Treat camouflage and other military colors, such as olive and navy, like neutrals,” said Serluco.

Valerie Steele, director and chief curator, The Museum at FIT (MFIT), spoke with Fashionista (August 11) about the popularity of rose quartz, one of Pantone’s 2016 colors of the year. “The idea that pink is for girls really only solidified as recently as the 1940s in the United States,” said Steele. “Some people would say, well, maybe pink is for boys because it’s a more determined color and closer to being red.”

Fashionista (August 8) published an interview with Emma McClendon, assistant curator of Costume, MFIT, about the history behind top clothing designers dressing Team USA for the Olympics.

Uniformity, currently on display at MFIT, received coverage in The Wall Street Journal (August 14) and on (August 12), which included an interview with exhibition organizer Emma McClendon. Additional feature coverage was received on Fashion Studio Magazine (August 8).
