The Fashion Institute of Technology's Museum will be introducing a new exhibit that will celebrate gay designers, which means it will feature pretty much almost every designer ever, right?

Ha! Okay, not really, but we can't ignore the fact that there are a lot of gay designers and icons in the fashion industry.

Chief Curator Valerie Steele will be heading the "Queer Style: From the Closet to the Catwalk" exhibit, which is said to honor gay designers throughout history.

She explains:

"Everybody knows that there’s lots of gay people in fashion, and there have been lots of gay designers: Dior, Saint Laurent, Versace, et cetera. The idea is to [think] consciously to put the gayness back into fashion history and say, 'Why are there so many gay people in fashion?' and 'Is there a gay aesthetic?' and 'What have been the influences of having so many gay people in fashion?'"

Seems like an interesting connection, one that we would like to see displayed at the museum.

And, hopefully, we'll able to to when the exhibit is opens at FIT next year.
