The 2013 Met Gala – Punk: Chaos to Couture

0

The 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala was held on 6th May 2013 in New York. This year’s corresponding exhibit is “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” detailing the lasting influence of the raw, edgy 1970s clothes on the modern runway.

Since its origins in the 1970s, punk has had an incendiary influence on fashion. With its eclectic mixing of stylistic references, punk effectively introduced the postmodern concept of bricolage not only into directional ready-to-wear but also into the elevated precincts of the haute couture.

As a style, punk was about chaos, anarchy, and rebellion. Drawing upon a corpus of sexual and political imagery that was deliberately intended to shock, provoke, and confront, punks made fashion overtly hostile and threatening. This aesthetic of violence – even of cruelty – was intrinsic to the clothes themselves, which were often customized with rips, tears, and slashes and such savage and sadistic hardware as studs, spikes, chains, buckles, zippers, D-Rings, padlocks, safety pins, and razor blades. “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” examines the impact of punk’s aesthetic of brutality on high fashion, focusing especially on its do-it-yourself, rip-it-to-shreds ethos, the antithesis of couture’s made-to-measure exactitude.

The live stream on Vogue.com was hosted by model Hilary Rhoda and Vogue’s William Norwich, can also be seen on the Moda Operandi, Samsung and Met websites.

Every year this gala draws a mix of Hollywood A-listers, designers and supermodels to celebrate the museum’s big fashion-focused exhibit. Beyonce Knowles was the honorary chairwoman, with co-chairs Mara, Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Lauren Santo Domingo, co-founder of online retailer Moda Operandi.
