Silicon Valley Will Meet the Upper East Side at Next Year's Met Gala
Anna Wintour reportedly banned selfies at the last Met Gala, but for 2016, she's embracing technology wholeheartedly. The 2016 Met Gala will be held in honour of the Costume Institute's upcoming Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. According to Vogue, the exhibit will show over 100 pieces of fashion that showcase feats of technology in design, both hand- and machine-made.
Appropriately, Apple is sponsoring the exhibit and their Jonathan Ive joins Anna Wintour as two of the four cochairs. The other two cochairs? Taylor Swift and Idris Elba. There's clearly a lot to be excited about for next year's event — and we're already looking forward to seeing how the long list of celebrities at the Met Gala will interpret next year's theme.
