The Twitter feed of The Museum at FIT (@Museumatfit) has been named among Time magazine’s “140 Best of 2013” Twitter feeds in the fashion and beauty category, for the quality of its daily fashion news and photos. The museum’s twitter feed currently has over 7,800 followers.

Others cited in the fashion and beauty category are Tyra Banks, Tavi Gevinson, FIT alumnus Michael Kors, Maybelline, Laurel Pantin, Nicole Richie, Coco Rocha, Kate Upton, and VFiles.

Glamour magazine picked up this category from Time’s list and reposted it on Glamour.com, titling it “9 Fashiony People You Should Follow on Twitter NOW!”

Written daily, the feed offers weekly themes that highlight artistic pieces from the museum’s extensive collection dating back to the 18th century, as well as other curated collections. The @Museumatfit features “Dress of the Day” on Mondays and Wednesdays, “Accessory of the Day” on Tuesdays, and the “Historic Dress of the Day” on Thursdays. The last day of the week is devoted to the “Friday Fashion Image,” an engaging photograph, illustration, or painting.

The Museum at FIT, which is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, is the only museum in New York City dedicated solely to the art of fashion. Best known for its innovative and award-winning exhibitions, which The New York Times has described as “ravishing,” the museum has a collection of more than 50,000 garments and accessories dating from the 18th century to the present.

Like other fashion museums, such as the Musée de la Mode, the Mode Museum, and the Museo de la Moda, The Museum at FIT collects, conserves, documents, exhibits, and interprets fashion. The museum’s mission is to advance knowledge of fashion through exhibitions, publications, and public programs.

FIT is a leader in career education in art, design, business, and technology, with a wide range of programs that are affordable and relevant to today’s rapidly changing industries. Part of the State University of New York, the college offers more than 45 majors leading to the AAS, BFA, BS, MA, MFA, and MPS degrees.
