FIT Museum Explores French Fragrance and Fashion

November 14, 2005

The Museum at FIT, New York, NY, will exhibit “Temptation, Joy and Scandal: Fragrance and Fashion 1900-1950,” from Feb. 24 to April 10.

The exhibit explores an alliance between two French luxury industries—fragrance and fashion—and how the combination produced products of enduring glamour and romance, organizers said.

The exhibition highlights the social, cultural and economic impact of the fragrance industry. The presentation is organized and curated by graduate students at FIT’s Museum Studies: costumes and textiles. Admission is free. More info: (212) 217-5800; Website: www.fitnyc.edu/museum.
