If you’re heading to the Big Apple, or if you’re one of the millions of people who live there, you have to stop by The Museum at FIT to see its latest exhibit, “Fairy Tale Fashion.”

“Fairy Tale Fashion uses some of the most extraordinary, beautiful, and luxurious examples of fashion to illustrate fifteen fairy tales, including well-known tales such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Little Red Riding Hood. In addition to offering a brief history of the fairy tales and their significance, the show highlights their direct references to fashion. There are more than 80 looks in Fairy Tale Fashion, including a number of recent creations from labels such as Comme des Garçons, Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Rodarte, and Undercover.” – The Museum at FIT

The exhibit, curated by Colleen Hill, will be on display until April 16th, 2016. Get a glimpse of some of the items on display and the fairy tales surrounding them!
