I am OBSESSED with The Museum at FIT and have been for years.They have some of my favorite exhibits throughout all of NYC – and you don’t have to enjoy fashion to enjoy the exhibit.The pieces they choose display are always amazing to view up close, but they do a good job of incorporating audio and video elements as well.The current exhibit, Uniformity, is fascinating (it’s not just military uniforms and sheds light on American culture) but no matter what FIT is showcasing, you can be sure that it will be worth going to visit.And when admission is free, how can you not?

This museum is amazing!!! Loved looking at the fabulous designs! Classic!  I want to buy everything; but nothing is for sale, I'm soo luckey...I would be beyond broke.  Free thrills for a fashionista!  Love it!
