The Museum at FIT has already figured out how to top a show filled with shoe porn: by focusing on the influence of gay designers for September's Queer Style: From the Closet to the Catwalk. As previously reported, designers like Cristóbal Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and Gianni Versace will be celebrated with what's bound to be one impressive collection of clothes.
In today's WWD, Director and Chief Curator Valerie Steele laid out the plans for the next two exhibits after that. In the spring, the museum will host an international survey of fashion in the 1930s, which will be followed by an exhibit outlining the influence of dance in fashion in the fall of 2014.
