Beauty im­per­fect

#Legend - - 6/18 - fit­

Fash­ion Un­rav­eled isn’t your typ­i­cal fash­ion ex­hi­bi­tion. Rather than fea­ture pris­tine clothes that ex­em­plify a theme, a time pe­riod or a de­signer’s aes­thetic, it ex­plores the roles of mem­ory and im­per­fec­tion in fash­ion. The ex­hi­bi­tion at the Fash­ion In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy in New York also high­lights the aber­rant beauty in flawed ob­jects, giv­ing prece­dence to gar­ments that have been al­tered, left un­fin­ished or de­con­structed. Th­ese se­lec­tions un­der­score one el­e­men­tal fact about cloth­ing: that it is de­signed to be worn and has, in some cases, been worn out. See it un­til Novem­ber 17.
