Fashion Culture Online Event: Gabriela Hearst in Conversation with Valerie Steele
October 4, 2021 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month
Uruguayan-born fashion designer Gabriela Hearst launched her eponymous label, in which products are made with care and detail, in fall 2015. For Hearst, tradition is more important than trend. There is a purpose to every piece she creates; she calls her works “honest luxury.” She is the winner of the 2016/2017 International Woolmark Prize for Womenswear and the 2020 CFDA American Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. She speaks with MFIT’s Director and Chief Curator Dr. Valerie Steele about these accomplishments and her recent appointment as creative director for Chloé.
The Museum at FIT’s fall Fashion Culture programs are offered online. All programs will premiere on the museum’s YouTube channel at 6 pm on the designated day. Please subscribe to the channel for information about future events.
