FIT Authors Talks: The History of Modern Fashion
February 16, 2022 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
FIT Adjunct Assistant Professor Professor Daniel James Cole and NYU Assistant Professor Nancy Deihl will give an FIT Authors talk about their book, The History of Modern Fashion. Discussion and Q&A to follow.
This book explores fashion not simply from an aesthetic point of view but also as a manifestation of social and cultural change. Focusing on fashion from 1850, the authors consider the evolution of women’s wear, menswear, and children’s wear. The book looks at the dissemination of style and the mechanisms of change, at the relationship between fashion and the visual, applied, and performing arts, the intertwined relationship between fashion and popular culture, the impact of new materials and technology, and the growing globalization of style.
