Celebrating Punk Fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!

The spring 2013 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art will be PUNK: Chaos to Couture.  The exhibition will be open to view starting May 9th through August 14th and takes a deep dive into examining punk's impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the 1970's through it's continuing and prevalent influence today.

One concept that I'm ridiculously excited to see explored and portrayed is punk's enduring contribution to high fashion via do-it-yourself or known best as DIY.  The four galleries of DIY are Hardware, Bricolage, Graffiti & Agritpop and Destroy.  With the renowned Met Gala being held tonight, May 6th  I'm looking forward to seeing what attendees will be wearing.  This year's theme of PUNK: Chaos to Couture, mean the ensemble possibilities are endless.  I'm expecting to see alot of Rick Owens, Comme des Garcons, Gareth Pugh, Martin Marigela and Vivienne Westwood on the red carpet.
