Kevin ("Oh no, darling, that's a bathing ensemble") Jones is Curator of the FIDM/Fashiong Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum and Galleries.
Here's how this week's arts and culture piece begins:
FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) is a private college in Downtown L.A. offering majors in fashion design, interior design, merchandising and marketing and many others.
FIDM also features a museum and galleries that are open to the public.
Kevin Jones, curator, has been at his post for 15 years. Recently, accompanied by the very stylish Susan Aronson, long-time executive director of admissions, he gave me a tour.
“The FIDM collection is one of the most important in the country, with more than 15,000 pieces of historic dress, men’s and women’s, from 1800 to the present, as well as accessories, jewelry, fragrance packaging and ephemera.”
