In special lecture of textile , Dr. Valerie Steele will explore the history, symbolism, science and psychology of color in fashion, based on the exhibition, She's Like a Rainbow, on view at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

She's Like the Rainbow: Colors in Fashion

Saturday, April 28, 2:30 pm

Why is red the color of passion and revolution?

Why is blue such a popular color, whereas yellow has so many negative associations?

Why is black today's most fashionable color?

"Color is one of the most fundamental components of fashion," says Steele, "yet it is often misunderstood. This is because color is not simply a natural phenomenon (the sky is blue, or at least it looks blue); it is also a complex cultural construct. Color has a history. Thus, color symbolism varies greatly across cultures, and changes over time."

'Dr. Valerie Steele is director and chief curator of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She has curated numerous exhibitions and published extensively on various aspects of fashion.'
