FIT Plots Dance Exhibition

“Dance and Fashion” is due for fall 2014.

ALL THE RIGHT MOVES: Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, picked the right Paris season to research her fall 2014 show: “Dance and Fashion.”

Not only are more designers creating ballet and modern dance costumes, but Rick Owens incorporated dance in his show. “Now I’ve got to include stepping,” Steele enthused about the college step teams Owens enlisted to show off his spring 2014 collection. “Maybe I can get some of the girls to come over for the opening,” she mused at the Hussein Chalayan show on Friday morning.
