China: Through the Looking Glass

So lucky to make it to the MET China themed fashion exhibition last minute, just a day before closing. 
The atmosphere was beautiful and a bit mystical even. The exhibition featured more than 140 extraordinary examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear alongside Chinese art and filmic representations of China. Really excited to see some movies by Chinese directors now. 

Legendary milliner Stephen Jones created custom headpieces for each of the mannequins, including hats, tiaras, and fascinators inspired by antique Chinese vases, teapots, and plates.
