Paris, Capital of Fashion
Join Valerie Steele, Director and Chief Curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology for her talk Paris, Capital of Fashion. For more than 300 years, Paris has played a very important role in the history of fashion. Dr. Steele will discuss how and why Paris became widely regarded as the international capital of fashion.
Since 1981, the Steven & Dorothea Green Critics’ Lecture Series has introduced internationally renowned artists, museum curators, scholars and critics to the South Florida Community. These speakers have shaped art history through their scholarly, creative, and leadership contributions. They have inspired us to think critically, investigate further, and consider the discourses and practices that shape the world of art.
