The Fashion Institute of Technology and The Museum at The Fashion Institute of Technology presents The Roaring Twenties and the Swinging Sixties exhibit, which aims to  show the parallels between the fashions of the 1920s and 1960s.

The Roaring Twenties and the Swinging Sixties features 26 objects, fashion illustrations, and archival photographs from the organizations’ collections. There are six thematic sections: Twenties Nostalgia; Dreams and Discontent; Obsession with Youth; Music Mania; Cultural Appropriation; and Mode and Modernity. Video extras at the exhibit include a "curatorial walk-through that delves into the exhibition themes, behind-the-scenes content, and The One Hour Dress, a video in which two seamstresses compete to bring the fabled one-hour dresses of the 1920s and 1960s to life," says a Fashion Institute of Technology spokeperson.

“The ’20s and ’60s each brought about new ideas of the “modern woman” that impacted fashion in remarkably similar ways,” says a Fashion Institute of Technology spokesperson. “The shared spirit of the times, whether in art, music, technology, social movements and upheaval, or cultural inspiration, is highlighted by paired objects with discernible visual similarities.”
