Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology

Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology

The First Monday in May - some would argue it is the most highly regarded day in fashion, when celebrities and fashion industry elite attend The Met's annual fundraising gala for the Costume Institute. This year's theme is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçon: Art of the In-Between and features approximately 150 pieces from the last four decades of the Japanese designer's career. I expect we'll see many looks from this influential designer on the red carpet tonight as attendees pay homage to the designer's work.

In honour of tonight's festivities, we're sharing a look at the couture pieces that were on display at last year's exhibit, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology
