What is the Met Gala?
The Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the early 1970s through its continuing influence today. The exhibition will feature approximately one hundred designs for men and women showing how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk’s visual symbols.
The exhibit focuses on the relationship between the punk concept of “do-it-yourself” and the couture concept of “made-to-measure,” and will be organized around the materials, techniques, and embellishments associated with the anti-establishment style.
