It appears that when I go for my July visits to the city, a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art is in order. This year's big fashion exhibit is China: Through The Looking Glass and it was stunning. It depicts how traditional Chinese design has impacted on Western fashion over the years.
A truly inspiring exhibit which is also pretty big as it takes up three floors of the museum. The exhibit ends September 7th so if you're planning a trip to the city, this a must see! In the meantime, here are some pictures.
Some of these rooms were so dark and I did not want to use a flash so I did my best to photograph what I could. The below are gowns inspired by blue and white porcelain dishes.
This room was so mind blowing, I could have spent the whole day in here.
Red because, China, ya know?
