As Kareemah mentioned in the last post, the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology has indeed relaunched their online collection. Wow! What a stunner it is, and useful, too.
Researchers can browse by century and decade, and those wishing to focus on Menswear or Accessories can do so easily. The object records include fields regarding the designer, manufacturer, the date/season, the medium, and provenance, as well as a concise descriptive paragraph – all of which make this online collection eminently easy to search.
Other visual resources available to the public from the Fashion Institute of Technology include some newly digitized designer clippings files (Chanel, Schiaparelli and Adrian) and images from the FIT Special Collections and Archives (SPARC). Clipping files and images from SPARC can both be found in FITDIL (chose the option to log in as guest), SPARC images can also be found on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/people/fitspecialcollections/
