Once a year, on the first Monday in May, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York opens its doors to the Met Gala, the ‘Super Bowl’ of social fashion events.
Andrew Rossi’s film is a Who’s Who of the fashion world. The late Karl Lagerfeld makes claim to designing clothes that are ‘applied art’ whilst Jean-Paul Gaultier insists that his silhouettes represent the highs and lows of society and that to survive, clothes must be “politically and economically alive!” Behind the scenes, Anna Wintour, Vogue Editor-in-Chief, draws together the worlds of high culture and celebrity in time for the grand opening.
Dr Savithri Bartlett, Senior Research Fellow (Knowledge Exchange), who teaches on the BA (Hons) Fashion Marketing programme at the University of Winchester, will introduce the film and lead a Q&A with special guests after the screening.
