China, Through the Looking Glass.

Visits

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Fascinating look at the fantasies and distortions of the West when looking East. Modern and historic fashion is compared to the elaborate clothing of ritual. Beautifully staged. After amazement, much of this begs us to think about the rituals of fashion. See it for the Gallianos, the Chanels, the Emperors robes and cinema’s iconic Anna May Wong.

Don’t miss it.
