This is a lovely short film shot by Andrew Yamato for The Museum at FIT. It’s for their new exhibit on 1930s fashion, titled “Elegance in an Age of Crisis.” For more, you can check out the second half to this video, which focuses on womenswear, as well as the special we shot on the exhibit’s opening day. 

For those unable to visit the museum, a book accompanying the exhibit is available for pre-order on Amazon. I’ve already bought my copy and am now eagerly waiting for it to arrive.
