Met Gala 2017

The theme for this years Met Gala was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Rei Kawakubo will be the first living designer since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983 to be the sole subject of the fashion exhibit.

The Japanese label Comme des Garçons is behind some of the most radical, avante garde pieces of fashion in our modern era. Ms. Kawakubo established the label in the 1970s and refused to accept any of the rules that govern normal clothing design: that clothes need to be flattering, or made a certain shape. Instead, she was way ahead of her time in challenging our ideas about what defines beauty, identity and gender. 

The exhibition will again we curated by Andrew Bolton. 

I really commend the celebrities who stuck to the theme and took some risks. 


However, other stars did stand out in some amazing designers.


Hopefully I will get to see this exhibition in person before it closes.
