The Museum at FIT is one of only a handful of museums in the world devoted to the art of fashion. The museum was founded in 1969 to support the educational programs of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), a college that is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. Known then as the Design Laboratory, The Museum at FIT began presenting exhibitions in the 1970s, utilizing a collection on long-term loan from the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Over time, The Museum at FIT has acquired its own collection, which now consists of more than 50,000 garments and accessories from the eighteenth century to the present, as well as thousands of textiles and other fashion-related material.
