The first Monday in May was a public holiday for most around the world but for New York bound fashionistas it was the 2017 Met Gala. This year’s theme is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons. Rei Kawakubo is the only second living designer (next to Yves Saint Laurent in 1983) to be the sole focus of the Met’s blockbuster fashion exhibit. You can read more about the exhibition here but first let’s get to the fashion. And in no particular order…
