The Handmade x The Machine-Made Collab Creation of Haute Couture

Have you wanted to go to the #ManusxMachina exhibition in New York City but so far you have been unable to find the time to attend? Well then you are in for a little treat!

This week our Sunday our viewing is a sneak peek into The Costume Institute’s spring 2016 exhibition, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, narrated by exhibition curator Andrew Bolton.

The Costume Institute’s spring 2016 exhibition, presented in the Museum’s Robert Lehman Wing, explores how fashion designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear.
