Wireless Bras
Colleen Hill, curator of costume and accessories, The Museum at FIT (MFIT) on the embrace of the wireless bra:  “The trend toward wireless and other more forgiving bras wasn’t created by the pandemic, only accelerated by it.”

Camo Print
Tom Scott, assistant professor, Fashion Design, on how the camouflage print has been embraced by fringe groups: “I don’t think the White Power people get to appropriate something iconic like camouflage that’s already worn by many different types of people and has been worked into street style for decades. They don’t get to take that pattern and make it mean what they want it to mean.”

Covid-19 – One Year Later

Valerie Steele, director and chief curator, MFIT, reflects on how the pandemic continues to impact fashion:  “If we go back three days a week, we’ll certainly be doing more shopping and more dry cleaning, but it may not be a wholehearted embrace of everything before all the techies started wearing T-shirts and men stopped wearing ties.”
