The Fashion Institute of Technology is Cleaning out its Closet

1920s Gene London Collection dresses

The collection at the Fashion Institute of Technology currently includes about 50,000 garments and accessories, dating from the 18th century to the present. Next weekend they will be cleaning out their closet and auctioning off institutional property from their permanent collection. Believe me when I say this is not your neighbour's garage sale. This will be the first sale of the The Gene London Hollywood Collection, one of the world's finest collections of Golden Age Film Wardrobe. Pieces from other historical societies, institutions, museums, private collectors and estates will also be on the block.
