"Punk: Chaos to Couture"

Opening this week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is this year's Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Ah, if only I could make it out to NYC this summer! The exhibit, which will run from May 9th to August 14th, brings together original garments from the beginnings of punk in the 1970s, and high-fashion pieces by iconic designers that will continue to push normal boundaries, like Vivienne Westwood and the late Alexander McQueen, to name a few. There are several rooms to the exhibit, namely one being dedicated to Blondie, The Ramones, Patti Smith, and Richard Hell, and another containing original items from Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren's Seditionaries London boutique, where the Sex Pistols used to get their clothing from in the early '70s. This show sounds too exciting for words (especially if you're a fan of the foundations of punk rock like myself)! —Maddie
