One of the city's best hidden gems is the Museum at FIT, where entry is free and the exhibits amazing. The latest feather in their fashionable hat? Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color.
Organized by the museum’s Director and Chief Curator, Dr. Valerie Steele, Pink takes a look at our intriguing relationship to a color that's seen itself defined as feminine, divisive, juvenile, sexy, edgy and more. So how did pink become exclusively a girl's color? Can it be just as serious as black? A fascinating color swatch of 80 ensembles from the 18th century to the present - with pieces by Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Jeremy Scott, and Rei Kawakubo - takes on this complex fashion tale.
On display until January 5th, be sure to pay a visit!
