Without a doubt, part two of “Fashion, A-Z” at the Museum at FIT illustrates the adage “What’s old is new.”
A 1926 Edward Molyneux blue silk chiffon cocktail dress with sequins speaks to that, as does a 1929 pale yellow Jean Patou evening dress. The 60 fashion pieces in “Fashion, A-Z: Highlights from the Collection of The Museum at FIT-Part Two,” which is on view through Nov. 10, are from an assortment of designers. The show opens with an Adrian gown followed by a photo-printed Akris dress, a Pierre Balmain number paired with one from Oscar de la Renta for Balmain, a red Bill Blass ensemble is followed by Burberry Prorsum and so on.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
