FIT dominated the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2020 Costume Institute College Fashion Design Competition, with five of the 10 finalists studying at the college.

This year’s challenge focused on the Met exhibit, About Time: Fashion and Duration, which “explores how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present, and future,” according to the exhibition description. Students were asked to “create one design expressive of fashion as an acutely accurate and especially sensitive timepiece” and “generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present, and future in one ensemble.”

The five FIT student finalists are Maryam Almasi, Haixi Ren, Parker Spear, Catherine Aurora Wilkinson, and Jingyi Xu.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Met’s annual College Night event has been canceled, and a fan favorite will be chosen online. Last year, FIT student Bayarmaa Byambatsogt was chosen as fan favorite.
