NEW YORK — Members of The Fashion Group International and alumni of the Tobe-Coburn School for Fashion Careers are planning a photographic retrospective recognizing distinguished women who have helped build the American fashion industry.

Proceeds of the exhibition, scheduled to open this fall, will go toward maintaining The Fashion Group International Archives — a resource library of slides, photographs, publications, manuscripts, transcripts, film and video.

A Tobe-Coburn steering committee is accepting contributions and loans from alumni for use in the exhibition. Sylvia R.J. Scott, a co-chair of the committee, can be reached at (914) 669-9469.
