The Fashions of the Twentieth Century, Women's Diverse Body Types, Lingerie and Fashion Trends

Elinor comments on the Current FIT Exhibits in NYC, April 2018 Elinor and David traveled to NYC and of course had to view the exhibits at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in Chelsea. The school is the equivalent of the Central St Martins, in London. This time one of the exhibits was focused on historic adjustments to body silhouettes historically. The other exhibit presented one designer of the 1950-60’s, Norman Norell, an NYC designer. My interest centers upon twentieth and twenty-first-century fashions. But then again, having said that, so much of who we are today is based upon who we were historically as well as from where we came ( mentally and geographically).
