Monday, May 1st

Very thoughtful article on the Met Gala. Worth a read

For most people, the first Monday in May means it is one day closer to summer. But, for the fashion community it means something far more important will happen. The first Monday in May is the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala to raise funds for the Costume Institute and unveil the spring exhibition. Otherwise known as the biggest night of the year for fashion. This year it will take a look at the genius designer/artist, Rei Kawakubo, designer for Japanese avant garde label Comme des Garçons. This is the second exhibit ever for a living designer, Yves Saint Laurent in 1983.

Past years exhibitions; Punk: Chaos to Couture, Charles James: Beyond Fashion, China: Through the Looking Glass and last year Manus x Machina: Fashion in the age of Technology.
