Everything you need to know about the MET Gala

Every year, fashion lovers have a date with Anna Wintour and all the most beloved celebrities, business people, models and designers all over the world. Obviously, we are talking about the MET gala.

This gala was born in 1948 because of the reason to collect charitable funds for the Metropolotinan Museum of Art from New York. This event, has always been such a space where the houses of Haute Couture and the most important designers could create unique art pieces with a great artistic and creative level behind them.

If you want to attend to this gala, you must follow a dress code and all the designers who participated must follow it and inspired it when they create their pieces. This year, the chosen theme was In America: a Lexicum of Fashion, where we have seen so many reinterpretations of this dress code, from odes to American flower or tributes to black slavery, to the a new image of historical garmets of American fashion.

Particulary, this gala has resulted to be very interested because of the variety of styles, colors and silhouttes we have seen.
