EVENT DETAILS
The Museum at FIT's 26th fashion symposium brings together scholars & curators & their new research on the social & cultural significance of shoes. Shoes have played an important role in human society for millennia, but interest in them has grown exponentially in the past few decades with Americans-especially women-buying more shoes. A growing cohort of men have begun collecting sneakers. This symposium explores the evolving significance of shoes over the centuries-in real life & in the cultural imagination. In this way, we hope to show the many ways in which shoes matter to us.



Speakers:

Valerie Steele & Colleen Hill Shoes: The Collection of The Museum at FIT

Melissa Marra & Elizabeth Way, Head to Toe

Elizabeth Semmelhack, He Wore/She Wore: The Short History of High Heels

Christyna Pourhabib, The First Pair: A Look into Sneaker Culture
