FIT Oral histories project

This oral history collection contains close to 400 interviews of prominent 20th-century fashion industry insiders, including Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne, Princess Grace of Monaco, and Vera Maxwell, as well as members of the FIT faculty and staff. This collection of in-depth interviews with individuals in every segment of the fashion business creates a broad historical record that is drawn directly from the knowledgeable, informal, and often colorful verbalization of its practitioners. FIT's Oral History Project is a unique record of facts, ways and means, points of view, practice and personality that could be preserved in no other way.
