If you're like us (well, me; Lynnie is still on her honeymoon), you're hiding from the heat indoors, enjoying sweet, delicious air conditioning, and passing the time scouring your favorite fashion websites. On my "to visit" list today -- The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology's recently re-launched e-museum. MFIT Online Collections enables designers, students, educators, and members of the public to interact with the Museum’s world-class permanent collection at http://fashionmuseum.fitnyc.edu. This repository of digital images, documenting over 600 objects, allows users to search, browse, collect, and share online images of fashion and accessories dating from the last 300 years to the present. New objects and images will be added to the database every month. Users can also create one or more personal image sets, saving these collections for their own research and inspiration or share them with other users. 


Happy searching!
