CHELSEA—About six months ago, The Museum at FIT launched the first half of its tribute to the best design of the past 100 years with a showcase called "The Great Designers: Part One." Yesterday marked the debut of the second half, now called "Fashion A-Z." (Hey, nobody ever accused the fashion industry of consistency.) The show features over 60 looks by big names ranging from Pierre Balmain to Raf Simons, and it's open to the public through next November. []
