  The Met Gala takes place and if you don’t know what that is shame on you – it’s the Superbowl of social fashion events.  Bar none!  By special invitation.monday1

A splashy fundraiser featuring costumes, couture, socialites, A-listers, icons and influential people in fashion, film, art and music.

The First Monday in May  is a new documentary film directed by Andrew Rossi.  It follows the creation of The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s most attended fashion exhibition in history, “China: Through The Looking Glass,” an exploration of Chinese-inspired Western fashions by Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. With unprecedented access, filmmaker Andrew Rossi captures the collusion of high fashion and celebrity at the Met Gala, one of the biggest global fashion events chaired every year by Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour.

The movie dives into the debate about whether fashion should be viewed as art.

As Karl Lagerfeld describes, “it is applied art”

What will I wear????

The theme for this year’s Met Gala is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. Sounds like we’re going to be seeing some cutting edge fashion this year!
