Insiders' look into Punk: Chaos to Couture

Punk: Chaos to Couture is this year's Met Fashion exhibit.  While the theme may be a little confusing or questionable to many, Andrew Burton, curator of the exhibit, beautifully and cleary shows how the punk movement influenced fashion just as much as it did music and politics.  The exhibit is composed of amazing fashions by Macolm McLaren, Vivienne Westwood, Gianni Versace, and Comme des Garcons, as well, as movie clips, recreations of the infamous Westwood/McLaren clothing store in London, and the iconic bathroom of CBGBs.

The exhibit opens on Thursday, May 9 and closes on Aug 14.
