Manus x Machina
“Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” was the theme of the most exclusive party of the year The Met Gala.
Every year the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art curate an exhibition. The theme of the exhibition is also the theme of the Gala powered by Anna Wintour and Vogue. This year the exhibition focus on the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion.
“Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made,” explains Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute. “But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other.”
Last night the Gala was hosted by cochairs Idris Elba, Jonathan Ive,Taylor Swift, and Anna Wintour. Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada served as honorary chairs, and the gala and accompanying exhibition are sponsored by Apple.
