Manus x Machina - Fashion in an Age of Technology

A new exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute explores the relationship between the handmade and the mechanized in fashion. Head Curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Andrew Bolton’s vision pays homage to craftsmanship, innovation and the role designers play in the creative process.

The show’s galleries are divided into embroidery, featherwork, artificial flowers, lacework, leatherwork, pleating, tailoring, and dressmaking. Another interesting counterpoint: Haute couture versus prêt-à-porter.
