Last week I took a quick trip to NYC so that I can visit The Met for the Chaos: Punk to Couture exhibition as a Polvyore community correspondent! It was a total experience as we were treated to a VIP tour of the exhibition with Moda Operandi x Polyvore. We saw firsthand the amazing pieces by some of the best designers/labels like; Burberry, Moschino, Vivienne Westwood, Maison Martin Margiela, and many more. The exhibition showed how punk has influenced high fashion today and how everyday items like safety pins were a big part of the punk movement. It was an era of DIY- where they liked to add certain elements to their look like rips, patches, holes, safety pins, etc. to make themselves stand out.
After the 1+ hour tour, we then headed to the Moda Operandi offices so that we could take a closer look at some of the Punk to Couture pieces!
