Valerie Steele, fashion historian and chief curator of The Museum at FIT came in this afternoon for an interview. She looked stylish in her black Isabel Toledo suit. (The museum is wrapping up an Isabel Toledo exhibit and Valerie will be speaking with the designer herself tonight; so it was a sure bet that she'd be wearing something from her collection.) In our recap of New York Fashion Week, Valerie proclaimed that short skirts are back. But will the fad of over-the-knee boots last? Will black ever go out of style? And what's the deal with the Japanese denim fetish? All of this will be explained when the interview goes live next week. Stay tuned: Valerie had some really interesting things to say.
