The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s next Costume Institute Exhibition will focus on Technology’s impact on Fashion.   From May 5 to August 14, 2016. Sponsored by Apple, a perfect fit.  “The Exhibition will explore the impact of new technology on fashion and how designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready to wear.” There will be more than 100 examples dating from an 1880s Worth gown to a 2015 Chanel suit. The manus x machina: fashion in an age of technology is organized by Andrew Bolton, Curator of The Costume Institute, the first time in charge for my favorite curator. The Met Gala, which will take place on May 2, 2016, will include Co-Chairs Taylor Swift and Anna Wintour, Hononary Chairs will include Karl Lagerfeld, Nicholas Ghesquière, Miuccia Prada. The fabulous feather dress with bird heads here is by Iris van Herpen, Fall/Winter 2013-14.   To see some of the past Costume Institute Exhibitions, click HERE
