Ballerina: Fashion’s Modern Muse will be The Museum at FIT’s 23rd academic symposium. The one-day event will explore the ways in which twentieth-century ballerinas and their glamorous, romantic costumes profoundly inspired modern fashion.
Speakers will include Lynn Garafola, professor emeritus of Columbia University; Laura Jacobs, dance and fashion critic; Jane Pritchard, curator of dance at the Victoria and Albert Museum; and Patricia Mears, deputy director of MFIT and curator of Ballerina: Fashion’s Modern Muse.
The symposium will also be livestreamed.
This event is free and open to the public.
