"Chaos to Couture", this year’s exhibition by the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art focuses on Punk and its influence on high fashion from the 1970's up to today.
“Punk’s signature mixing of references was fueled by artistic developments such as Dada and postmodernism,” said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, “so it makes sense to present this exhibition in a museum that also shows the broader output of those movements. Indeed, that dialogue between art and fashion is what makes The Costume Institute so singular.”
Celebrities were caught in their own version of Punk at the annual MET Gala. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a pair of statement Louboutin boots with a magnificent Philip Treacy head piece and a Giles Deacon dress, Beyonce amazed everyone with her Givenchy edgy style and Madonna totally played the part in her Casadei look.
The exhibition tries to capture how punk philosophy influenced haute couture and pret-a-porter fashion, a mixture of distressed DIY with made to measure precision. More than 100 outfits by some of the most influential designers of all time, like Dior, Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Bailey, Prada or Karl Lagerfeld will tell the story until August, the 14th.
