Punk: Chaos to Couture

The official member announcement for Punk:Chaos to Couture, the new exhibit at the Costume Institute in 2013 was sent out today. The exhibit will open on May 9, 2013 and will remain open through August 11, 2013 (with member previews on May 7th and 8th).

The official description of the exhibit is as follows:

"Since its origins, punk has had an incendiary influence on fashion,

says Andrew Bolton, Curator of The Costume Institute. Featuring more than one hundred designs for men and women, the exhibition will include original punk garments from the mid-1970s juxtaposed with recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear have borrowed punk's visual symbols. Presented as an immersive multimedia, multisensory experience, the clothes will be animated with period music videos and soundscaping audio techniques.

Cannot wait for the Costume Institute's next installment!
