Met Gala 2016
What better way to spend a dreary Tuesday than trawling the hashtag #MetGala2016. This years event definitely didn’t disappoint with this years theme propelling the red carpet fashion to the next era in fashion. The red carpet was a sea of metallic, bold textures and all sorts of innovative designs.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced this years exhibition “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. Exploring the link between Haute Couture and machine-made fashion. The vast distinction between the two has been explored in all sorts of fashion fusions on the red carpet at this years event and we have to say each designer and their interpretation of technology and fashion has been inspiring to watch.
The Gala event itself featured more than 100 pieces of fashion, both haute couture and ready-to-wear. From embroidery, pleating and lacework are juxtaposed with machine made designs like laser cutting, thermo shaping and 3D printing.
What we saw on the red carpet today completely adhered to the night’s theme in true Met Gala style with everything from the fiber-optic woven organza of Zac Posen’s gown to Marchesa’s couture gown designed by a cognitive computer system in collaboration with IBM. This particular Marchesa gown truly represented what the night was about with the pairing of delicate handcrafted petals and the advanced technology behind the design.
With the current advanced in technology it is the way fashion world is heading and tonight was a grand celebration of fashion and technology combined.
For us here at One Day, stand outs on the red carpet were of course, Queen Bee in Givenchy, Jess Hart in Azzedine Alaia, Kendall Jenner in Atelier Versace and Jourdan Dunn in Balmain.
