New York Archives Week: Design Firm Archive Tour at FIT Special Collections

October 26, 2020 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This online tour will highlight NYC design firms’ archives that have been deposited in FIT’s Gladys Marcus Library since the late 1950s. Join us to see truly beautiful renderings focusing on American women’s fashion design of the 20th century. Your hosts, Associate Professor Karen Trivette, MLS, and her staff, will also discuss a recent award of a Save America’s Treasures grant to preserve three of the 459 manuscript collections in the Special Collections and College Archive holdings.

The Save America’s Treasures project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). This event is also part of New York Archives Week.
