Fairy tales are known for their “enchantment” upon the reader, thanks to the vivid descriptions of the world the characters live in, using elements such as clothes to illustrate story symbols and to push plot. Fantasy and fashion are inexorably linked, which is why Ms. Hill believes that designers, “consciously or subconsciously continue to be influenced by fairy tales.”
Fairy Tale Fashion will be on view in The Museum at FIT’s Special Exhibitions Gallery from January 15 until April 16, 2016
