Description

As Anna Wintour’s ceremonious “first Monday of May” approaches, it’s probably best that you become acclimated to the exhibit that will debut at the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the 2016 Met Gala. This year’s theme, ‘Manus x Machina’, explores how designers can allow for handmade and machine-made creations to coexist in constructing haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear. The exhibition will house more than 150 ensembles that have been collected since the 20th century.
