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.
