Met Gala

It’s been a week since the Met Gala, the fashion event of the year, was held in New York City. The Metropolitan Museum’s charity gala for it’s Costume Institute is organised in collaboration with Vogue. The theme for this year’s exhibition and gala is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. It is highly encouraged that the attendees dress in accordance with the theme. But Comme des Garçons is a difficult theme to emulate; it is a world full of “bulbous dresses caged in plastic, skirts that look like crumpled paper, and shirts resembling spellbinding lumps of moss,” as put forth by Vogue magazine.

And as much as we wish that our lives could be as fantastical as Kawakubo’s clothes are, it’s not. That’s why I felt myself drawn to the more classic looks. The simple silhouettes, the charming pastely shades to the deep alluring ones and the whimsical embellishments and accessories. This is what our best dressed list contains, looks that you and I could wear too (if we had a black-tie party or maybe a prom to attend!).

I'm 21 and on the cusp of becoming of who I am supposed to be. I sometimes feel I am like a lined notebook, with hand drawn lines, some straight as an inch ruler, others utterly disorderly, up, down they go, travelling any which way. Maybe that is why I am practicing design, to chase even the most oblique ideas - bend the rules. I strongly believe that it is important to embrace your idiosyncrasies. I always felt different in school and instead of striving to be the same as my friends, I chose to continue being true to who I was and I think that has made all the difference (to slightly paraphrase Robert Frost).
