On May 1, 2017, the Metropolitan Museum of Art held is annual, invitation-only benefit gala to help raise funds in support of its Costume Institute and kick off its spring exhibition. This year’s theme for the gala and exhibit is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-between. Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons designs are known for being bold and theatrical.
