Manus x Machina exhibition at the MET

Manus x Machina exhibition - Fashion in an age of technology at the Metropolitan museum was really great opportunity!! There were lots of dresses from different famous Fashion BRANDS! It was amazing to see all these pieces of ART with my own eyes!

"Manus x Machina features more than 170 examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear, dating from the early 1900s to the present. The exhibition addresses the founding of the haute couture in the 19th century, when the sewing machine was invented, and the emergence of a distinction between the hand (manus) and the machine (machina) at the onset of industrialization and mass production. It explores this ongoing dichotomy, in which hand and machine are presented as discordant tools in the creative process, and questions this relationship and the significance of the long-held distinction between haute couture and ready-to-wear.
Designers in the exhibition include Cristobal Balenciaga, Boué Soeurs, Thom Browne, Sarah Burton (Alexander McQueen), Pierre Cardin, Hussein Chalayan (Vionnet), Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (Valentino), André Courrèges, Christian Dior, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (Dolce & Gabbana), Alber Elbaz (Lanvin), Mariano Fortuny, John Galliano (Christian Dior, Maison Margiela), Nicolas Ghesquière (Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton), Hubert de Givenchy, Madame Grès, Halston, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough (Proenza Schouler), Iris van Herpen, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren (Viktor & Rolf), Marc Jacobs (Louis Vuitton), Charles James, Christopher Kane, Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons), Junko Koshino, Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel), Helmut Lang, Mary McFadden, Alexander McQueen, Martin Margiela, Issey Miyake, Thierry Mugler, Noir Kei Ninomiya (Comme des Garçons), Norman Norell, Miuccia Prada, Paul Poiret, Gareth Pugh, Paco Rabanne, Noa Raviv, Simone Rocha, Yves Saint Laurent (Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent), Marios Schwab,  Raf Simons (Christian Dior), Maiko Takeda, Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy), threeASFOUR, Giambattista Valli, Madeleine Vionnet, Junya Watanabe (Comme des Garçons), Yohji Yamamoto, and others."   this information from this site CLICK !!!
