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.
