The Met takes on Manus x Machina

An adventure to The Met is never a disappointment 

From the early 20th century to the present time couture has ranged between hand-made and machine technology

Manus Machina (Hand and Machine) exhibits couture pieces that are truly art

The first piece in the exhibit is this remarkable piece by the one and only Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel

That’s a HAND-PAINTED train with hand embroidered perarls, and gemstones

Just take a moment…

The ceiling was even an elaborate ornate inspiration

A fabulous highlight were floral applications

creating a sense of whimsical wonderment

This Lagerfeld piece is a A/W 2004 Wedding ensemble, don’t mind if we do…

Metallics were a huge highlight

Sea life and nature inspired pieces were innovative and creatively inspiring

This was a favorite of mine, can you imagine!?

The perfect formal engagment dinner party dress or rehearsal dinner dress

An all-time favorite- Dior

Lagerfeld, van Herpen, and Saint Laurent feather pieces are out of this world

 Pleats took a true art form 

Raf Simons for Dior S/S 2015

The iconic Chanel is always identifiable.
