Scope and content

Ellen Goldstein, the Chair of the Accessories Design and Millinery Department, started with FIT’s Fashion Design Department as a part-time instructor. In 1981, the school received a federal grant for industries affected by imports and was able to start an accessories department. With additional support from the industry, the department has taken off. Goldstein explains her beginnings as a tapestry weaver and how she got into handbag design. She then describes the demographics of her department’s diverse student body. She discusses how both the 1-year and 2-year program are feeding the accessories industry and how FIT’s millinery program has revitalized an industry thought to be dead.

          Archivist's note

          The Public Copy of this interview is edited to cut out some things Goldstein states that she and Carol Poll do not want shared publicly.

          A Nicole Miller Spring 1993 fashion show jumps in after the Goldstein interview at 01:37:15. Its beginning seems to have been cut off. It was edited out of the Public Copy of the video.
