Big Think: Valerie Steel talks about the relationship between women and fashion

Valerie Steele, a fashion historian and chief curator of the Fashion Institute of Technology's museum, decides whether staple items like hats, jeans and boots are in or out.

She talked to Big Think last week to recap New York Fashion Week and to discuss the relationship between women and fashion, including how Michelle Obama might be changing everything. She also speculates about whether black will ever go out of style.
