Live Conversation: Thoughts on College Fashion in the Lead-up to the Museum at FIT’s “Ivy Style” Exhibit

The Ivy Style exhibit, opening Friday and running through January 5, 2013, centers on the “Ivy League look,” or what came to be viewed as classic menswear: suits and letter sweaters, bowties and khaki, madras and tweed (but never together!).

As we near the end of Fashion Week, we’ve invited some friends and experts to join us in a lunchtime conversation about the origins  and current state of college fashion. We will be using the discussion tool Branch, and the conversation will begin in this post at noon.
