I've been meaning to post this interview with Dr. Valerie Steele, Director of the Museum at FIT, ever since it appeared on Coutorture.com. I'm sure many of you know that Coutorture is leading the way in pushing for the acceptance of blogs as valid voices in fashion. Coutorture's Julie Fredrickson and Philip Leif Bjerknes constantly hustle to get attention and respect for their growing community of fashion blogs. Their video coverage of New York's Fashion Week is so comprehensive that I was afraid these two videos you'll find after the jump would soon get buried in their archive. They post the coding for the videos for other bloggers to use, so please take a moment to check out their site if you haven't already. Enjoy!
