The FIT Archives holds records that document the Fashion Institute of Technology’s people, events, buildings, and research. The history of the FIT is a vital part of the history of New York’s garment district. The collections include selected institutional records created by past and current administrative and programmatic units, as well as documentation related to FIT campus architecture, information about Museum@FIT exhibitions, and audio-video recordings of FIT-sponsored educational programs such as symposia and lectures.
Stylecat, the FIT Library’s online catalog, provides access to all available materials in the institutional archives. Archives Finding Aids offer organizational histories and comprehensive inventories. To use FIT Archives holdings, please contact a Collections Associate.
