Division Avenue and MacArthur Students Visit FIT

December 18, 2017

The Fashion Design and Fashion Illustration students from Division Avenue and MacArthur high schools visited the Manhattan ca mpus of the Fashion Institute of Technology on December 6th. Students viewed an exciting and inspirational fashion exhibit within the Costume Museum of FIT . The students enjoyed a guided tour of Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme.This exhibit examines high-fashion inspired by clothing made for survival in the most inhospitable environments on earth. Today's luxurious parkas trace their roots to the "heroic era" of polar navigation (1890 to 1922), while down-filled "puffer" coats and backpacks were originally perfected for extreme mountain climbing in the mid-twentieth century. Experimental, high tech materials made for exploration to otherworldly realms ?" such as neoprene (deep sea) and Mylar (outer space) - made their way onto the runway.

Both Blue Dragons and Generals alike enjoyed shopping at the student store for FIT logo items, thenshared a relaxing lunch at the student cafeteria.

The Fashion Design and Fashion Illustration courses are taught at Division Avenue by Joanne Galterio and Tim Ryan respectively and Randi Nuara and Jackie Parsekian at MacArthur.
