FIT Oral histories project

Launched in 1978, an oral history of the fashion industries has been maintained by the Gladys Marcus Library’s Special Collections and Archives department, amassing nearly 375 oral history holdings in various formats, to date, and growing.

In anticipation of FIT's 75th anniversary in 2019, “FIT Talks” was established and institutionalized in [2012?] to make available previously inaccessible content, and to continue to build a rich library of oral histories representative of the fashion and broader creative industries that will be of interest and available to the public at large.

Interviews already include current and former members of the FIT community as well as significant and well-known figures in the fashion industry. For example, charming dialogue about fashion between Princess Grace of Monaco and designer Vera Maxwell is now available to any researcher. Interviews provided through Ford Models, Inc. are also part of the collection.
