The opening of the exhibition organized by the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of New York it is celebrated with a feast at which the label style is usually marked by the theme of the exhibition. Whether the craft in front of the technology, the model as muse, China, catholicism, the punk or camp. No matter how risky or conceptual topic, the dresses always exceed the expectations of the imagination. If that is possible.
Unfortunately, this year the festival has been cancelled due to the health crisis that has forced us all to stay at home and to respect the safety distance.
