Punk Expo @ The Met
Like with so many things in fashion, punk is having a second moment. Or was it a third moment? Fourth, even? Anyways, punk is en vogue and the Costume Insitute at The Metropolitan Museum is hosting a exhibition which will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the early seventies, through its continuing influence today.
Punk: Chaos to Couture features approximately one hundred designs for men and women, the expo will include original punk garments and recent fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrowed and still borrows punks visual symbols. If it’s anything like the opening party to the Met Ball they recently hosted – remember Madonna in her spikey outfit? – we definitely want to go see it ourselves. The perfect excuse to visit NY. The expo is on from today till August 14th, so enough time to get your punk on. [EH]
