We recently went to see this extraordinary exhibit at the Met. We did arrive on an early Friday evening so the crowds were probably at their maximum capacity. Took over an hour of standing in line to get in, but it was completely worth it. Met had done a beautiful job customizing each exhibit room to showcase the collection pieces. With work so unique, intense and expertly crafted, it’s impossible to have a favorite. Most pieces were accompanied by quotes from the designer who very direct and articulate about his work. The work seems to almost exist in its own space blurring the lines between fashion and art, and the deliberate, timeless and genius nature of it is undeniable.
The exhibit is running through August 7th at the Met Museum:
