It is that time of year once again for one of the biggest fashion fetes of the year - the Met Gala 2015. This year the theme and exhibition title is China: Through the Looking Glass. The gala is this evening and is sure to delight sartorial senses. If you did not get an invite, no fear, member previews are Tuesday and Wednesday with the exhibition opening to the public on May 7th. The exhibition will run through August 16th.
One thing I find particularly interesting about this year's exhibit is that it will incorporate artifacts from other areas of the museum. Here is some additional information about the exhibition from the Met:
Here are a few of my favorite images available from the preview:
I am looking forward to viewing the exhibition and seeing how the curators collaborated in sharing this story. In the meantime, I expect to see saturated red gowns, intricate floral embroidery, and perhaps a silk jacket or two at the gala this evening. Stay tuned to my Tumblr page, visionner, for my favorite looks from the gala on Wednesday!
