A preview of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming Costume Institute exhibit (also this year’s Met Ball theme), Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. The exhibit expects to showcase over 100 looks and opens May 5th (timed to the Met Ball). According to Vogue, the exhibit, which the gala celebrates, “will focus on the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion.” Out of the 11 looks previewed, these are my favorites..
