I ❤ NY: Manus × Machina at the Metropolitan Museum


      Every year I look forward to the Costume Exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum and this year was no exception. This season's theme is Manus x Machina - Fashion in an Age of Technology and I when it was first announced I was utterly excited because fashion and technology are some of my favorite things! To have them melded together in one exhibit - perfection. This year's sponsor was Apple, and you could really see the company's aesthetic influence over the layout and minimalistic feel of the exhibit this year. It is set in a clean white "cathedral" with cameras projecting magnified detailed pictures of the clothing and a soothing opera like soundtrack playing on loop in the background. This year's exhibit was smaller than last year's, but I loved the theme and the pieces on display. Click through to view a small sampling of the exhibit!
