Yes! Met Gala news!
The first Monday in May is basically fashion’s biggest day, and now we know what 2017 will bring!
The theme for next year is the inimitable Comme des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo, who is known for some of the most striking and innovative designs in the industry! It’s gonna be out-of-this-world!
The actual exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum will open May 4, and will “feature approximately 120 Comme des Gar├â┬ºons womenswear pieces, designed by Kawakubo, now 74, from as early as the brand’s very first Paris runway show in 1981. And unlike prior Costume Institute shows, the garments will not be placed behind glass partitions and will instead be placed at eye-level without any barriers.”
Sounds awesome! We can’t wait to see celebs interpret this very worthy theme.
