Considered one of the parties of the year, is also the opening event of the Costume Institute’s annual show. This year both have the theme “Manos x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology ”
As Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the MET, said: “Fashion and technology are inextricably connected, more so now than ever before. It is therefore timely to examine the roles that the handmade and the machine-made have played in the creative process. This exhibition proposes a new view in which the hand and the machine, often presented as oppositional, are mutual and equal protagonists.”
All fashion lovers have their eyes turned to the red carpet of event. Celebrities dress in the theme of the year, which makes everything more interesting! This year was not different!
