Fashion Arts Society

The Fashion Arts Society (FAS) supports the cultivation of IMA’s world class fashion and textile collections. All proceeds from membership and events go towards fashion acquisitions.

FAS members gain a greater understanding and appreciation of textile and fashion arts through education, discourse, and social engagement. Members also have the opportunity to attend exhibition previews, private tours, and enjoy free admission to lectures and special events, and to travel to see private and public exhibitions and collections with other FAS Members.

The Fashion Arts Society is led by a volunteer board and is advised by Niloo Paydar, Curator of Textile & Fashion Arts.
