Last night was all about the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit 2015 aka Met Gala, this year’s exhibition theme was, “China: Through the Looking Glass”. H&M makes its debut to the Met Gala this year collaborating with committee member, fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker on her custom-made gown. And in honor of their first time taking a table adorned celebrity guests in custom H&M looks including Vanessa Hudgens, Janelle Monáe, Banks, and Odell Beckham Jr.
Inspired by this year’s exhibition theme, H&M’s design team created one-of-a-kind looks in collaboration with each of its guests. The designs honor each individual’s unique personal style and features intricate detailing such as hand done beading and embroideries. Keeping with the theme, design elements such as pleating inspired by the folds of a fan highlight the depth of H&M’s high-fashion design capabilities while still maintaining their position as one of the world’s leading retailers.
Pretty impressive line-up of celebrities for H&M’s first Met Gala right? Loved that they worked with one of fashion’s most influential style icons of our time, Sarah Jessica Parker to create her look for this year’s gala. Sarah Jessica wore a one-shouldered black silk dress, which she designed in collaboration with H&M, with a draped train embroidered with Scarlet poppies. The dress also included a patch work panel, made of sustainable fabric and embellishments, highlighting H&M’s vision of making fashion sustainable and sustainability fashionable. Her head piece by Philip Treacy turned lots of heads too, amazing.
