The Museum at FIT examines the concepts of imperfection and incompletion in fashion.
Fashion Unraveled examines garments that are altered, unfinished, or deconstructed, in addition to clothing that shows signs of wear, will highlight the aberrant beauty in flawed objects. Unless such imperfections are intentional—as they are in the case of deconstructed fashion—these items are often overlooked in museum collections. Fashion Unraveled includes a selection of more than 65 garments, accessories, and textiles from the museum’s permanent collection, highlighting objects that are not only visually compelling, but that often also tell intriguing stories about their makers and/or wearers.
