The Metropolitan Museum of Art is going punk couture for its Spring 2013 exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, "Punk: From Chaos to Couture" will "highlight the origins of the punk movement and draw direct connections to haute couture and ready-to-wear creations that it has inspired for the past three decades," Women's Wear Daily reports.
Designers who had a real influence on punk designs will be shown. The Spring 2013 exhibit will highlight looks from Azzedine Alaia, Ann Demeulemeester, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Rei Kawakubo, Alexander McQueen, Alexander Wang and Rodarte. This show will pinpoint the origin of punk designs in the early to mid-1970s in both New York and London and trace the influence of punk stylings throughout the decades. Perhaps we will see Elizabeth Hurley's famous Versace safety-pin dress from 1994 again.
Watch for it, May 9 to Aug. 11
