Curators Circles: Fashion Council

Since its founding, the MFA has been a leader in collecting fashion and its related arts. In 1930, the Museum became the first in the US to have a department dedicated to textile arts. Today, the collection is global in scope, and includes tens of thousands of objects ranging from ancient ceremonial dresses to contemporary haute couture and ready-to-wear garments. With a primary focus on the MFA’s collection of 20th- and 21st-century fashion and jewelry, the support of the Fashion Council has funded and made possible important acquisitions and original exhibitions. Join this dynamic group to actively pursue fashion’s impact on the local and global stage and explore the intellectual, cultural, and artistic aspects of fashionable dress and adornment. Through experiential programs with celebrated designers, jewelers, filmmakers, writers, collectors, scholars, artists, and more, members enjoy an exclusive and intimate connection to the fashion arts.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
