The Costume Institute's spring 2016 exhibition focuses on how technology influences fashion, specifically when it comes to haute couture and handmade designs. While machine manufacturing used to separate haute couture from ready-to-wear, the division between the two modes has more recently become unclear. Works by Chanel, John Galliano for Dior and Yves Saint Laurent will be on display. For more information, visit metmuseum.org.
