Not-to-be-missed is the Norman Norell retrospective at F.I.T. Known for his masterful simplicity, cut and fit of his clothes. Norell was the American designer who made 7th Ave the rival of Paris the exhibit runs through April 14th.

Norman Norell (1900-1972) one of the greatest fashion designers of the mid-twentieth century, is best remembered for redefining sleek, sophisticated, American glamour. This retrospective exhibition presents approximately 100 garments, accessories, and related material chosen by designer Jeffery Banks. Many of the objects come from the private collection of designer Kenneth Pool. They are a testament to the breadth of Norell’s creativity and his enduring impact on fashion. This array of suits, jersey separates, menswear-inspired outerwear, and Norell’s hallmark sequined “mermaid” dresses reflects the profound respect these contemporary designers have for Norell and his oeuvre.
