The industry most fashionable event is on its way! The 2017 Met Gala will take place on May 1st and best believe, the vets will not hold back on the red carpet. This year’s theme for the Costume Institute Exhibition and Gala is Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons.
Kawakubo is the founder of Comme Des Garçons and known for introducing to the public the possibility of arranging the human body in new shapes; and she’s never afraid to do the extreme. Also, she revealed that her creations only come out of a place of unhappiness.
