The First Monday in May

Found the documentary The First Monday in May to be mesmerizing. The documentary is about the Met Gala in 2014 which was hosted by Ann Wintour. The film follows the path to the event and all the key players involved; designers, museum curators, assistants, celebrities, and more.

The theme of the event in 2014 was China: Through the Looking Glass. And extraordinary feat for the annual fundraising event. Fascinating to watch all the elements and creative minds come together to produce this large scale extravaganza which takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

And what they produce brings up the question of art, what is art, and can fashion be considered art on the level of great works already housed in The Met.

You’ll have to watch and decide for yourself.

Currently available on iTunes and Netflix.
