This exhibition explores the work of Claire McCardell (1905-1958), one of the founders of American sportswear. Introducing key themes that are characteristic of McCardell’s designs, it features nine original dresses from The Museum at FIT’s Study Collection, mid-20th-century advertisement materials from Special Collections and College Archives, and her now classic book, What Shall I Wear? The What, Where, When, and How Much of Fashion, originally published in 1956.
Claire McCardell: Practicality, Liberation, Innovation was organized by Nico Frederick, Christina Pene, and Emma Sosebee, seniors in the Art History and Museum Professions undergraduate program (AHMP).
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
