Fashion and Physique is the nineteenth fashion symposium to be organized by The Museum at FIT. Lectures and panels include topics such as the emergence of the plus-size fashion industry in the early twentieth century, the impact of popular culture on how we assess the female body, and fashion accessibility for the disabled in the technological age. With this symposium and the exhibition «The Body: Fashion and Physique,» MFIT hopes to foster a dialogue about how the fashion industry has contributed to the marginalization of certain body types, and to shed new light on the work of designers, models, and activists who challenge what constitutes the “ideal” fashion body.

Speakers include Project Runway co-host Tim Gunn; designers Prabal Gurung, Christian Siriano, and Becca McCharen; author of «The Fashioned Body» Dr. Joanne Entwistle; co-founder of JAG Models Gary Dakin; founder of The Model Alliance Sara Ziff; and Aimee Mullins, who has transcended her own physical challenges to gain worldwide recognition as an Olympian, a model, and an actor.
