We will begin our Fashion Travel Study to NYC by enjoying a Welcome Dinner in Manhattan at an authentic Italian restaurant. Soon after, we will have a private visit to renowned designer Isabel Toledo's studio where students will get a firsthand tour of her design facility and meet her in person. Students will next visit The Met's permanent Costume Collection with over 35,000 costumes and accessories representing 7 centuries of fashion. On Tuesday May 23rd, students will have the privilege of viewing the recently opened FORCE OF NATURE exhibit at The Museum At FIT, examining how the natural world has inspired fashion designers for centuries. The Guggenheim Museum, a significant architectural icon of the 20th century, will give students a chance to see the foundation's impressive collection of modern and contemporary art. A second designer studio will be visited, this time the celebrated Alexander Wang, where students will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A with the famous designer. As part of their assignment for this course, students will do shopping reports in the Chelsea Neighborhood, Greenwich Village, and Soho which is known for its chic art galleries and interesting boutiques. They will explore the luxury fashion market as well by researching fashion trends on Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue as well. Students will have a day where they can freely explore New York City further and revisit some of their favorite highlights, before our Farewell Dinner at an authentic Greek restaurant and our return trip home to LAX.
