This video, narrated by co-curator Nancy MacDonell, is a walk through of ​The Museum at FIT exhibition The Women of Harper's Bazaar, 1936–1958 ​(on view March 1 – April 2, 2016). ​​The exhibition explored the dynamic collaboration among Harper's Bazaar editor-in-chief Carmel Snow, fashion editor Diana Vreeland, and photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe​ through original photographs, magazines, and garments from MFIT's collection.
In their second year of study, students ​from the Fashion and Textile Studies MA program at FIT ​work in collaboration with The Museum at FIT to create and install an exhibition. The class handles every aspect of the process from concept to completion, including research, design, publications, and related events. ​This mini-tour was organized by Becca Love in collaboration with Nancy MacDonell.
