Whenever I'm home I always take some time to visit the Met and check out the current costume exhibit.

This years theme is Manus X Machina "Fashion in an Age of Technology." The exhibit features fashion that combines handmade and machine technology production processes. There are different sections that highlight specific features such as feathers, pleating, lace, 3D print, etc.
