Fairy Tale Fashion

WHEN:

From January 15th 2016 to April 16th 2016
Free Entry

WHERE:

The Museum at FIT, 7th Avenue at 27 Street, New York, 10001

WHAT:

Cinderella is famously distinguished from her stepsisters by her delicate slippers (made of gold, glass, or fur, depending on the version and translation of the tale), but it is her lavish ball gown that first catches the prince's eye. While Cinderella is probably the fairy tale most frequently associated with clothing, many others, including Beauty and the Beast, Furrypelts, The Little Mermaid, and The Wizard of Oz, use descriptions of dress to portray their characters transformation, vanity, power, or privilege. These descriptions of clothing also serve to enhance the sense of wonder and fantasy that is integral to the fairy tale genre.
