The annual exhibition at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum in New York (May 7 to August 16) this year goes as far afield as China to examine how Chinese culture, its artefacts, its customs and its films have influenced Western fashion. The stage setting displays, among others, superb examples of clothes by Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli…
The exhibition, curated by Andrew Bolton, contains artwork lent by the Palace Museum, revealing how China has been, and is, a vivid source of inspiration for Western creators. It is proposed as a stimulus for a fruitful cultural exchange, full of meaning and prospects.
