Fashion Forward Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology

Posted on Feb 3, 2012

Impact: 50 Years of the CFDA is the first museum exhibition to celebrate the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the leading fashion trade organization in the United States. Approximately 100 garments and accessories designed by the CFDA’s most impactful creators of the last fifty years are on view. Also included in the exhibition are visual images and acknowledgment of the nearly 600 designers who have been members over the last five decades. Each living designer participating in the exhibition has selected a single object or ensemble that best represents his or her impact on the fashion world. Work by historical CFDA members have been selected by exhibition curators, Patricia Mears, deputy director of The Museum at FIT, and Fred Dennis, the museum’s senior curator.

Impact: 50 Years of the CFDA is a collaborative partnership between the Museum at FIT and the CFDA. Conceived by CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg, Impact is an ode to the illustrious designs of the CFDA’s many members and marks the organization’s 50th anniversary in 2012.
