Tomorrow night is the Costume Institute MET Gala for "Rei Kawakubo / Comme Des Garçons: Art of The In-Between". I've talked about the MET and the Costume Institute on this blog before but I couldn't help myself and I had to talk about it again. If you are not familiar with this gala or exhibition, it is basically described as the Super Bowl of fashion, where creators, celebrities, and fashion influencers all reunite together for the opening of the Costume Institute spring exhibition. The exhibition happens once a year and presents either a fashion movement, a culture, a designer, or anything else related to fashion. I have had the chance to visit last year's exhibition at the MET and I just couldn't believe it. The exhibition reunites fashion pieces and other artifacts that work together to tell the story of the chosen theme. Everything is super beautifully curated and some of the most extravagant high fashion pieces ever created are exposed for your eyes to see. It's an event highlighting the fact that fashion is a form of art, and celebrating the work of talented fashion craftsmen.
The night of the MET Gala is also super exciting! It serves as a funding event for the activities of the museum. On this night, you will basically see all the most extravagant red carpet looks ever imaginable on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I still cannot get over Rihanna's stunning yellow train in 2015 by Guo Pei. Since this year's theme is about Rei Kawakubo and dualism, I'm over excited to see all the looks! Oh and if you haven't yet seen it, there is a documentary called "The First Monday In May" about the 2015 exhibition, and it's available on Netflix!
