The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) have been the leading fashion trade organization in the United States and now, there is a museum exhibition - the first - to celebrate the CFDA. The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (MFIT) will be presenting IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the CFDA and the nearly 600 designers who have been a part of the organization.
The exhibition will be filled with approximately 100 garments and accessories by the CFDA's most impactful creators over the last 50 years. It will be presented in a thematic way, illuminating American fashion and its broad spectrum, from sportswear to couture-quality evening wear.
Diane von Furstenberg, designer and president of CFDA, gave birth to the idea of IMPACT.
"American designers have always had impact on how people dress," Furstenberg said. "'Impact' was the one word that came to mind immediately - it is so strong and defining of our individual and collective influence."
Among the designers featured in this exhibit are: Halston, Geoffrey Beene, Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Rodarte and Proenza Schouler.
Experience the fashion from February 10 to April 17 at the Museum at FIT. Free admission.
If NY is a little too far for you and you won't be able to make the exhibit, check out the companion book to the exhibit, also entitled IMPACT, produced by the CFDA and published by Harry N. Abrams.
