This exhibition from Museum at FIT will explore the role fashion plays in establishing, reinforcing, and challenging power dynamics within society. It will include both men’s and women’s clothing from the 18th century to the present, organized thematically to concentrate on five categories: military, suits, status, rebellion, and sex. Each section will investigate how certain designs and garments have come to be culturally associated with power, as well as how their meanings have evolved over time. The exhibition will also examine how fashion designers have interpreted these stylistic archetypes — both to convey and to subvert power.
