IMPACT: 50 Years of the Council of Fashion Designers of America
IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA is the first museum exhibition to celebrate the quintessentially American artistry of the leading fashion trade organization in the United States. Spearheaded by Council president, Diane von Furstenberg, the exhibition includes garments and accessories by the most impactful creators of the last fifty years.

Featured in the exhibition are interactive touchscreen displays that illustrate a timeline of American fashion and recognize the nearly 600 designers who have been members of the CFDA over the last five decades. Each living designer selected to participate in the exhibition has chosen a single object or ensemble that best represents his or her impact on the fashion world. 

Work by historical CFDA members have been selected by exhibition curators, Patricia Mears, deputy director of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York, and Fred Dennis, the FIT museum’s senior curator.

Among the designers included in the exhibition are Geoffrey Beene, Michael Kors, Coach, Donna Karan, Norma Kamali, Francisco Costa / Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Kenneth Cole, Diane von Furstenberg, and Thakoon.

Draw and Shoot: Fashion Illustrations and Photographs from the Collection
  Rudolf Bauer, Man with Derby and Two Women
  Helmut Newton (American, born in Berlin, Germany 1920-2004), Fashion Model in Chains, Paris, 1976, printed 1984, gelatin silver print, ed. 14/75, Permanent Collection 2007.5.104. Bequest of Isadore and Kelly Friedman
Draw and Shoot offers a sampling of 20th century fashion drawings and photographs, showcasing the evolving aesthetics of fashion design and its documentation by pencil and camera. Over 50 works from the Museum’s collection will be on display from artists such as Rudolf Bauer, Carl Erickson, Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, and John Rawlings.

The exhibition is a testament to changing notions of style, beauty, and the artistry of its documentation – from Rene Bouché’s drawings of private, in-store fashion shows typical of the 1940s to Helmut Newton’s highly-dramatic, gritty, and defiantly sexualized fashion shoots of the 1980s. The Museum’s assemblage artists and eras provide an insightful study of the rich history of fashion design, and serves as the perfect complement to exhibition, IMPACT: 50 Years of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
