FROM THE COSTUME INSTITUTE TO THE MET

There is always a good reason to visit the Met. Especially now that one can see more than 60 pieces of art from the Costume Institute archive in a colorful journey from the early 18th century to the present.

The Met is a place one wants to visit again and again. This time, in the “Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion” exhibition, we will admire feminine clothes, some menswear and accessories. We will also read an in-depth explanation about their contribution in the evolution of style culture. The collection will span several decades, with highlights ranging from a John Galliano for Maison Margiela dress from 2015 to a Cristobal Balenciaga gown from 1964, a Halston evening gown from the 1980s and a Vionnet gown from the 1930s.
