On March 21, Colleen Hill, curator of Paris Refashioned, 1957–1968, presented on the influence of popular culture on 1960s French fashion for The Museum at FIT’s Fashion Culture program series. Through an examination of style icons such as Brigitte Bardot and Françoise Hardy, the 1966 Jean-Luc Godard film Masculin Féminin, and Elle magazine, Hill showed how the overlap between music, films, and media helped to shape the dynamic fashion industry during this era.




A recording of this presentation will be made available on The Museum at FIT’s YouTube channel. See photos from the event below and on the museum’s Flickr page.
