New York City's Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is known for its internationally recognized programs in fashion, art, design, and related fields. This academic institution is also home to the Museum at FIT, which specializes in history-making "directional" fashion and boasts more than 50,000 pieces in its permanent collection. While a number of pieces in their collection date back to the eighteenth century, their strengths lie in modern and contemporary fashion. For those unable to visit in person, the museum also makes a large portion of its collection viewable online. Users can browse the museum's online collection by time period, or they can search by keyword as well as by a range of fields describing the objects and the designers. For those using the collection for research, visitors also have the option to register for a free account and save their favorite pieces to their own personal board. Whether fashion is a personal interest or part of your research, the Museum at FIT's online collection is a valuable resource.
