Met Gala 2013 For PUNK: Chaos To Couture

Each year, to celebrate the newest exhibition the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art holds the Met Gala, the fashion event of the season. Last Monday, it was the opening gala for PUNK: Chaos to Couture, to view from May 9 through August 14, 2013.

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. Featuring approximately one hundred designs for men and women, the exhibition will include original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk's visual symbols. The exhibition is made possible by Moda 'Operandi with the additional support of Condé Nast.

Focusing on the relationship between the punk concept of "do-it-yourself" and the couture concept of "made-to-measure," the seven galleries will be organized around the materials, techniques, and embellishments associated with the anti-establishment style. Themes will include New York and London, which will tell punk's origin story as a tale of two cities, followed by Clothes for Heroes and four manifestations of the D.I.Y. aesthetic Hardware, Bricolage, Graffiti and Agitprop, and Destroy. Presented as an immersive multimedia, multisensory experience, the clothes will be animated with period music videos and soundscaping audio techniques.

“Since its origins, punk has had an incendiary influence on fashion,” said Andrew Bolton, Curator in The Costume Institute. “Although punk’s democracy stands in opposition to fashion’s autocracy, designers continue to appropriate punk’s aesthetic vocabulary to capture its youthful rebelliousness and aggressive forcefulness."
