It’s Gonna Be May! Break out the memes and toss your heels like confetti fashion lovers! It is the first Monday of May, which means fashion’s biggest night has arrived. This year the Met Gala 2017 celebration is showcasing the gorgeous architectural designs of Rei Kawakubo.
Moreover, if you are a couture buff you are well aware that this is certainly history in the making. Rei Kawakubo is the first living designer to be honored by the Met Costume Institute since the extraordinary, Yves Saint Laurent back in 1983. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will display the “Art of the In Between” exhibit of Kawakubo’s distinctive high end designs from May 4th through September 4th.
The public will be treated to Rei’s stunning garments that invoke, “fascination with interstitiality or the space between boundaries” as mentioned by the Met Museum. The presentation will be available for viewing in the museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall. Nevertheless, enough gabbing on our part, let’s get to this year’s celebrity fashions!
