Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology Exhibit at the MET
It is always exhilarating when the MET has Fashion Exhibits. Currently the MET has the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology exhibit up until September 5th 2016. If you want to see it, go soon as there is still a bit of time left of the exhibition. There is a fascinating two floors to explore, and sections including lacework, leatherwork, pleating, featherwork and much more! As the title suggests, the exhibit is centered around technologies like 3D printing and laser cutting, as well as advancement in fabric manipulation like pleating and using alternative materials while carefully exposing the fusion of hand work. The result is a series of breathtaking garments with spectacular details.
Here are some of my favorite and most interesting pieces in the exhibit:
