The 2016 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala was held tonigh on 2d May 2016 in New York. This year`s exhibition “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” gathered the most important people from fashion industry, A-list celebrities and music stars to celebrate the development of new age fashion. 

The exhibition focused on the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion. “Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made,” explains Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute. “But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other.”

This evening`s Gala was hosted by cochairs Idris Elba, Jonathan Ive, Taylor Swift,while Anna Wintour. Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada served as honorary chairs, and the gala and accompanying exhibition was be sponsored by Apple.
