MANUS X MACHINA

If you have not yet seen the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology exhibit at The Met Museum, make it a point to get there before the exhibit closes on August 14th. It is simply amazing.


I had the esteemed opportunity to get a first look at the entire collection (yes, even before the celebs who attended the Met Gala) on the first Monday in May during the morning press preview. A privilege I do not take lightly, I am consistently in awe of what Andrew Bolton produces along with his team of dedicated fashion/art professionals.

For those who do not believe that fashion is truly an art form, simply take a look at this...
